My feeble attempts to paint watercolor with no pencil marks continue. This is a Reclining Buddha from the Buddha Park in Laos (Wiki image bottom.) I had pencil/pen sketched the head a while back — now I did a very quick watercolor from the sketch. Eh. But I continue to try, no guidelines. A bit like riding with no training wheels in the beginning. Unlike the image at the bottom of my last post, this was very quick. Not many layers, just go and see what happens!
This month Wikipedia is asking for funding. I give a bit to them every year for what they give us — access with no ads or tracking to a glorious quick research tool.

Katie- “feeble” is not a word I would associate with you in any context, especially when consciously practicing to acquire a new skill or improve an existing one.
Having said that and being a complete amateur, I use similar words when posting my “tangles”, knowing what I WANTED to achieve is not reflected by the finished piece.
Ironically I’ve been working on a post or two about “good enough” vs “perfect” and the concept of “personal par”. But I keep re-working the damn writing because they aren’t “good enough”.
We are our own worst critics.
Okay, got me. I want to read your post on good enough versus perfect and our own personal goals! My husband says I am hard on myself — I’ve never thought I was. Hmmm….
Well I’m the pot calling the kettle black or Takes one to know one or something like that. But age and infirmities force me to give up the holy grail of “perfect” hence my musings about other standards of success. Will get those damn posts ready one of these days 🙂
