May I share another hobby with you?
It isn't reading, so I hope you don't mind. I've recently got into watercolor painting! It is a relaxing hobby, no matter if I'm good or not. I'm pretty clueless and basically winging it. I'd like to share my paintings with you.
"Trees and Stuff"
This is the first full watercolor painting I did. This is on normal sketch paper, so the paper is a bit warped. I think I tried to channel Bob Ross, but he makes it look so easy! Of course, oil painting is a lot different from watercolor.
This is my second watercolor painting. I tried following a tutorial by artbybee7 on Youtube, but I could not get my sky to do what she was doing, so I ended up winging it. I like how it turned out.
:"Sunset On Water"
This is my third full painting. I wasn't satisified with how it turned out, but it is growing on me. I have to remind myself that I am a beginner and not to give up! Not every project is going to turn out how we imagine and that is okay!
"Sometimes Dead Is Better"
This is my forth full painting. I also did some final touches with some Prismacolor colored pencils. I was only going to paint a house and trees at the bottom, but it turned into a church and a graveyard. I keep seeing Pet Sematary stuff and maybe that influenced me.
