Our family doesn't really have definite vacation plans this summer so I'm sure I have a lot of time for movie marathons. But aside from that, I have listed down some projects that I have been putting off for quite some time now, which I hope to finish before the end of my break.
One of them is learning how to paint with water colors. The last time I worked with water colors was when I was in grade school. I remember using threads, screens, and blowing the water in different directions but I never really got the hang of it. In fact, I didn't really know what to do to make my art work look nicer. Decades afterwards, water color calligraphy has become quite a fad. And I want to make my own to decorate my living room or our bedroom with.
Today, I had my first water color practice. It can be quite frustrating, I must admit. Writing letters with loops using a brush is something I didn't imagine could be difficult.
|I know this is far from good but it was my best this morning.|
After several attempts, at calligraphy, I finally was able to paint popsicles which looked decent enough and one word which would not have earned a passing grade if I were a calligraphy teacher.
I do find the popsicles cute for a first timer. I am so happy with them...I think I am going to make more! They're the only things I can make for now. Hahaha! Anyway, if they look familiar, it might be because you've seen them on YouTube. I watched Art TV by Fantasvale and thought the popsicles were simple enough for a beginner like me to try. And I was right.
I wish calligraphy was as easy as painting popsicles.
