Im taking a little break from reviewing to immerse myself in art therapy.
These past few days have been high strung what with being public relations people (AKA tour guides), reviewing for a board exam and to top it all off --down with the flu. Hubby and i have been keeping long nights and stressful days which is why i find that some #arttherapy is needed.
Ive decided to bust out my new holbein watercolor set. Yes guys i have graduated to a full-on "artist" set of watercolors becauase i was forever getting annoyed with how prang would dry up sticky--making my papers clump up--or that ants seemed to love them making my storage its own ant hill.
Holbein is so much more pigmented (which is probably why its so much more expensive) because with just a tiny dollop i am able to paint a lot. Colors are also more vibrant and dont get watered down so easily.
What i am not happy though is that i was only able to buy them in the tube form and not in the pan--which translates to me having to get a mixing palette. But aside from this i am extemely happy with the purchase.
For my test piece i decided to make a watercolor wreath. I dont know why but laurels and wreaths are all the rage now in the "mod" art scene. I see it all over Pinterest and my IG feed. So why not go with the flow and create one of my own?
It was a relatively easy process, i just google-image what a wreath looked like and draw inspiration from the photos. The process was more for my brain to relax with the easy strokes and no-brainer painting.
The finish product came together beautifully and i topped it off with my "claim word" for the day:HOPE.
So there. Enjoy!
