This is why I love watercolor so much. It creates harmony when you put colors next to each other. The water bonds in friendship and I become a delivery system but not the boss. Watercolor teaches me so many life lessons about patience, perseverance, love and growth. It teaches me without words or judgement. I hope it does that for you too.
Finding the angle of a head when it tips up and down and from side to side is the hard part of this new learning curve. I am hoping that a proportional tool ( ordered for 12 dollars) will help me with accurate placement . I must admit, my brain does not want to see in three dimensions. At least I know I am in good company with this problem.
What I have learned so far :
If it was easy to simplify a head there would not be countless videos and books about how to do it..
When what you love to do becomes an economic concern things can shift. I only skirt around the issue here today. I think it is worthy of an in depth look later. I would love to hear what you think about the conflict of the love for painting with the need to make an income from it. There is some drama in there.
What I have learned so far;
It is always OK to ask the questions. That is the only way you begin to formulate your own answers.
I am a watercolor coach, watercolorist, and author.
