When my son was only about a year old, we went to a birthday party where my friend had organized a craft for the kids. She’d provided small (8×10) canvases and Crayola washable paint, and had lined her entire living room floor with butcher paper. Her hope was that the kids would use their hands to make paintings and there would be minimal mess afterward.
Re-Learning and Perfecting a New Medium (Part Two)
In case you forgot, here is the the photo from Part 1 of this Watercolor series, my epic fail to success #1 illustration. Let’s first make a list of where I went wrong:
I have been toying around with the idea of creating an Ink & Stitches logo for awhile now. In addition to my blog, I am starting an Etsy store called: InkAndStitchesArt. This shop (which is on vacation status at the moment until the listings are ready to go) will include: amigurumi patterns, occasional finished amigurumi, prints of some of my illustrations, stamps, and stickers as well. I am also readying an Ink & Stitches YouTube Channel, that will teach viewers how to crochet, but more specifically, how to crochet amigurumi.
Let me just start off by saying, I love watercolor, especially when it comes to illustration. It is, however, often described as being perhaps the most difficult and unforgiving of mediums to work with.
