About learning to breathe, well you’d think that was a natural thing we don’t need to think about it, we just do it. Like when my blood pressure was a bit high and the doctor said I must relax more.
No!! It is not that simple. Watercolour painting made me think a bit about this.
Try and clear my mind of everything I know about oil painting, try and clear my mind of everything that happened during the day. Just breathe slowly and go with the flow, follow the beautiful colourful water spreading on the paper. Forget about the canvas and oils.
So there I was trying to lower my blood pressure…
At this point my paper actually tore when I was removing the masking fluid, this is not watercolour paper so I it was difficult to get a good result.
But hey I kept trying and just did little things to learn new techniques.
