After pondering for a couple of weeks and being inspired at the most recent AANL Art Show in St. John’s, I decided to sketch and paint a poinsettia in watercolor to see how it would turn out. I was in awe as to how the color reacted with the paper, and how just a subtle touch or move could change the whole appearance of what I was working on. I thought that I had a lot of patience with painting before; this was a whole new experience! I’m hooked! Can’t wait to try it again, this time with less color loading at first, and more time drying between applications.
