Things often work better when you’re in “the zone”, right? Here’s my proof! I don’t even remember painting the bird on the left, but I was obviously just going through the motions and still fighting my love of watercolors. (Watercolors take great focus and a steady hand!) The one on the right was done just before an anticipated weekend away, the sun was out and a perfect temp and cool breeze flowed through my studio.
If it doesn’t come out great or feel good the first time, sometimes you just need to do it again!
