I have dived into exploring watercolor - supplies I have on hand that are under-used.
Figuring out what I actually own was fun.
Just laying down colors and seeing what looks good.
Doing my search for a character shape.
I love this class because it invites me to use fabric as well as all my other mixed media tools.
By working on these two things at the same time, a lightbulb went off. Why not reverse the process. Paint a painting with a character of unusual shape and turn that shape into a doll. Use watercolor and watercolor pencils to finish the doll out!
By doing this in a non-traditional order, I was challenged to interpret the shape I had painted in a way that could make a great doll shape. It was not as easy as I thought.
I really enjoyed the process and have 3 more paintings on their way to becoming dimentional.
