FUN HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES
WATERCOLOUR PAINT: BIRDS (INYONI IN ZULU)
There’s nothing like traveling and road trips during your December holiday. My husband and I are definitely travelers by heart, discovering new places and experiences. (I will try to start sharing some of our 2017/2018 December holiday plans, places and some holiday food soon, we went to a few places that’s not known for great signal so I fell behind a bit 😉 )
Even while traveling I still like to take time to be creative, but packing your oil paint and canvas or tools for a bit of wood work is not always plausible. So I discovered how easy it is to take along watercolour paint. It’s a matter of packing a small box with the paint colours, two or three paintbrushes and a watercolour paint book. There is always a container of some sort available to mix your colours in.
I would take time during our holiday to find a beautiful scenic spot to sit at – maybe with a sunrise or sunset – and then just sit and play with the paint. I discovered the secret to really round off your painting is using a black fine line pen to accentuate the outlines. I am a big amature when it comes to watercolours, so if anyone wants to add tricks of the trade in the comment section to help the “just-doing-it-for-the-fun-but-wants-to-learn-more” people we will appreciate it 🙂
I hope you will make some “me-time” to sit and play with your watercolours, you never know if you will really surprise yourself with the end result!
Have a fantastic 2018!
Lots of Love
