It's amazing what a productive day in the studio can look like.
Buying new supplies reenergizes and prompts working. It's superficial of me but retail therapy is a very strong motivator. I always want to use the materials that I just bought right away. This time it was the watercolor sketch book. It's a smaller size and it lets me work quickly and produce a lot. This practice will develop my skills while also keep me busy when I feel stuck on larger pieces.
The great thing about working in watercolor is you work in spurts because the material has to dry before you can move on. With a pause in these smaller experiments I decided to revisit some older pieces. These paintings that were 80% there and I decided to take them to 99%. I say 99% because I believe you can always fine tune but the overall composition is set.
I guess I'll just have to keep swinging by the art supplies store on the reg to keep this momentum up – just kidding (mostly).
