As you may know I’ve recently taken up watercolour painting as a 30 part challenge, known as the PrePerfection Challenge. This means that I can paint and improve, but by no means do I have the pressure or expectation of producing something perfect. Well that’s the idea any.
However after sharing a few paintings I’ve been getting positive feedback online and also offline! This is awesome, but it also makes me feel like I have to create something relatively ok. With that in mind, it’s taken me more than a week to even try and produce the 3rd piece. Well here it is… actually there are two…
PrePerfection Challenge is proving tougher than expected. Challenge 3 was Space. What is space? Outer space, an architectural space or a gap/hole? The broadness of this word made this challenge so hard. On this attempt I began to mark out a space on the page and left an area blank, thereby creating a space. Strangely it began to look more like an eye so I added the inner detail to finish the piece. It's not the finest work of art, but I think it completes the challenge. #shape #watercolor #eye #abstract #GreenGorillasFriend #amateur #preperfectionchallenge
These were both for the Space Challenge. I then managed to pick up the paintbrush again and complete number 4, the Triangle Challenge.
Meet my buddy, El Triangulo!
Challenge 4 of the PrePerfection Challenge – Triangle! Meet El Triangulo, the Mexican Aviation Head. He's kinda funky looking, and I'm getting some summer vibes from this little fella! #painting #sketchbook #simple #triangle #character #Mexicanstyle #preperfectionchallenge #justforfun #eltriangulo #watercolor
He took barely 10 minutes of a few quick swishes of the paint brush! That’s the kind of thing we like. Plus he was the first painting to be painted in a sketchbook. My other ones have all been on the back side of wall paper samples. #GreatWayToSaveMoney!
