Mountains

I did these three watercolor paintings a while back for an online course I was taking. They are about how by using bright or dull colors, one can focus attention on the foreground, background, or both–as in the last picture, which I am not fond of at all. I debated posting that particular one but decided to go ahead and put it out there. In any endeavor, we learn by our failures as well as our successes. I can look at it now and see what I would have done differently, but in my defense, I will say it looks very similar to my instructor’s finished painting. I’m finding out as I go along that at first one learns by imitating others (as in writing) before developing one’s own style. We are all unique, so it makes sense that our paintings will eventually be entirely our own, and not a carbon copy of someone else’s. I’m still on the path to learning my own.

On reviewing before publishing, I see that on the first two paintings, I signed them differently. KTW is my online persona, and KL is my real initials. Looks like I must be trying to figure out who “Kathy the Painter” is along the way too. 😊
