i painted parallel lines, tried some ombre (but with watercolors it's so different than with acrylics!), and then decided to (lamely attempt) hand-lettering/writing a portion from the psalms that i had just been reading that morning.
my tips for making watercolor wall art:
//1// pick a simple pattern. the blue streaks was something easy to do over and over, and i varied the amount of paint/water on my brush with each stroke. painting straight-ish lines was an easy pattern to keep up!
//2// once it's completely dry, lay something heavy on the paper to flatten it. i skipped this step, and as you can probably tell, the paint/water made the paper curl and become wavy.
//3// sketch out your lettering and phrases on a scrap piece of paper, and then use a pencil to sketch them onto the painted paper. i erased a TON because i messed up the spacing so many times. if i had started with a sharpie right away, it would have been over really quickly.
what have you been up to recently? any fun projects?
