While searching for those landscape tutorials I found this Lupin video that I thought I would try. Mine does not look like Lindsay's at all, but I am beginning to become comfortable with not comparing myself, in any way at all, to others and/or their work or being. This life is a one-time journey. Comparing ourselves to others sets us up for unhappiness and distress. Why choose to be less upbeat than we can be? I choose happy!
You will notice the white at the top of the painting. If you look closely you will see stitches there. I am using the beautiful book Daughter made for me with marvelous 140-lb cold-pressed watercolor paper. I have decided I will use that for much of my painting, unless I plan to send something as a post- or other card, or unless I need a larger piece of paper for a potential painting.
Painting is fun. Just do it!
