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

Janine
