Snowman in Watercolor – Jan 3, 2017

The computer and I seem to be cordial to one another today – just as long as I don’t try to upload a large file.  Hoping I didn’t shrink these pics too much.

One of the classes I am taking right now is in watercolor taught by Nathalie Kelley at WTC’s College on the Square in Snyder, Texas.  She is a wonderful teacher and talented artist.  (You can check out her work at https://www.facebook.com/NathalieKelleysArt or http://nathaliekelleyart.com/home.html.)  I have not worked in watercolor in years and only have done so in workshops.  I thought working in a class with other artists and in a medium I am not comfortable with might shake me up a bit.  Mission has been successful.

I chose to do something non threatening and fun – a Snowman!  Hats off to all those watercolor artists out there.  The friskit application alone is tedious and you can tell from my snowflakes, I am definitely not an expert.  However, I have had fun and I have enjoyed working in a studio atmosphere with other artists.  I am going again next week.

  1. nope, I don’t see any mistakes, I just see an incredible and very fun happy snowman. Love this.
    I’m excited to be in the newest 30in30 too.
    peace,

  2. Thank you CheyAnne! I would like to say it is an original but I used another as reference since I was using a new medium. My next watercolor will come from my own photo. I am going to check yours out.
