blueberry study || 8x8-inch original painting
Have you ever seen the movie, “Contact”? It’s one of my favorites. While I was working on this piece I had the quote, “Small moves, Ellie,” running through my head.
Watercolor is a study of small moves. Painting one wash and letting it dry. Dabbing small amounts of paint into a wet area. It’s small moves, and I forget that a lot in my rush to just get a piece done.
Not with this one. I sat in the small moments with it. Let it be still and came back to it. So many lessons from such a tiny berry!
What I learned:
- savor each moment.
- you can paint in the evenings, even if it isn't your favorite.
- lots and lots of light layers.
- watch the highlights and shadows.
- creating is such a gift!
- be still.
