Hello Paint Party Friday Friends, My PPF painting this week is inspired by Joanne Thomas’s Watercolour Line and Wash instruction video. There are also videos on painting movement and using a palette knife. If you want to learn something new and maybe win $50 worth of art supplies, check out the challenge page. The contest ends on Sunday, July 8, so you still have a little time to enter.
I really enjoyed the line and wash technique, but I always end up frustrated whenever I do this kind of lesson because I expect my painting to look like the instructor’s. Which is totally unrealistic, considering I doubt I have 1/10 of the experience!
I had the same problem this week doing my Zentangles. I let my expectations get in the way of my art. My new mantra will be: “LET GO and GO WITH THE FLOW.” Expectations only lead to disappointments.
Despite this painting not looking like the Joanne’s, I kind of like it and will definitely add this technique to my toolkit. Happy PPF. If you enter the contest, please let me know. I’d love to see your interpretation.
