A dabble with Water Colours I got for Christmas
My sister Glenda who is a few years older than me, gave me a beautiful set of watercolours, brushes and a pad as well. She's an accomplished artist, very gifted and has created many beautiful artworks over the years. I thought I'd take up the challenge and try them out on a smaller pad (A4). I spotted a lovely photo from an old National Geographic Magazine (don't you just love Nat Geo!)of a young Pakistani woman sewing beads onto a dress to earn money for her family. I did a water colour sketch of her and above is the result. I don't have any formal art training, so it was done more on instinct rather than knowing what colours to use. It didn't turn out half bad. Hope everyone had a great Christmas we sure did!
