Tiny Watercolor [painting]

Tiny watercolor

A little sketch in watercolor when I should have been writing.
Sometimes the mind needs to switch gears.

Now, I have a book to finish writing.

  1. Steve, this is BEAUTIFUL! I love, love, love watercolor (both, observing AND using). Sometimes switching the gears from one to the other “greases the gears” on the “one”. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Amy, thanks for the kudos. I’m happy to have made some art worth keeping. Watercolor is so delicate, so fragile, that I have to remember to be gentle when I paint with it. I’ve painted a lot of bad paintings in watercolor over the years, so I’m always unsure of myself when I do paint with it. But my studio is a catch-all and storage room right now, so it’s easier to grab a small piece of watercolor paper, fill some jars with water, and then paint in the living room.

      Getting away from writing for a while helped me locate problems with my current story. I thought it was close to being finished by the end of October, but now I see that the changes will push it well into November, maybe December before I finish it. Some of my readers won’t be OK with that, but I have to be true to the story as best I can. (Glad I don’t have a publisher pressing me for a deadline.) ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thanks Harry. After doodling in my sketchbook for a couple hours, I spent almost another 2 hours deciding what to paint. The initial work took about 3 hours, and another hour to fuss over it. All in all, 8 hours (minus a lunch break) to do a tiny painting. I wish I could churn out a good short story that quickly. ๐Ÿ˜€
