Patience

Patience is a person’s ability to wait for something or to endure something tedious…like watching paint dry.  

I have been painting for a few years and in all this time I have only once painted a watercolour. I must be honest that when I look at it I can see my pieces and I can see all the large ones that my then teacher painted for me. So although I remember it has being hard and frustrating I do also remember that it is a very beautiful and rewarding art form.  

After my Frida, I decided to play with watercolours. It really was playing, watching the water spread and dry and just seeing where it would go.

The paper is not watercolour quality it was just a normal sketch pad and the paints were an old school set. So of course the quality is affected quite a lot by these two being inferior and then there’s me!  

Impatient, thinking and painting as if I was holding an oil brush in my hand and trying to mix  watercolours as if they were oils.

So needless to say some times it was frustrating but it did teach me to breathe….inhale and exhale, S L O W L Y …Sometimes I just scribbled with the brush
