Today was my first lesson and I really enjoyed it. I’m learning the basics and sometimes that can be really boring but it wasn’t. I think I have a really good teacher. I can’t wait to paint some more and I do have homework so I must. That’s the best homework assignment I can imagine. I also have a sketch book and I’m supposed to sketch something in it every day for 15 minutes – not more. I just sketched one of the roses my husband got me for Easter but 15 minutes wasn’t enough time. I think I need to learn to just sketch the outlines and not get so caught up on shading.
Anyway, I’m very excited and can’t wait to see how far I can go. I have found my old blog (the original mygardenblue on blogger) and I’ve decided to turn it into a blog on my watercolor lessons. I’ll be posting pictures and thoughts I have along the way. It’s called http://paintinginmygardenblue.blogspot.com/ Right now it still looks like my old blog and has a lot of old posts on it. I can’t seem to delete them because they are memories. I think I’ll leave them there for now.
