An option while sheltering in place — Take a class. Dip your toe (or brush) in something you wouldn’t ordinarily do.
Because a very talented artist is now teaching her watercolor class on-line, I’m able to participate. I took a class once, about 18 years ago, and love the medium, (although I have very little intrinsic artistic ability.)
Some things we do for the joy of it.
The artist : Kaitlin Walsh
If you’ve ever heard of, or studied from, Netters (Atlas of Human Anatomy), you’ll appreciate her gift of painting the beauty of what is human.
This class is about painting animals. Lesson One: Jellyfish.
[I share this work from Thursday evening, because it’s probably hard to fail on a jelly fish. Yes, I know, it needs more background, a finer brush, a lighter touch.]
But … don’t expect anymore from me. Next week, a bird. A lot more parts. And after that, no idea.
In any case, it’s fun, messy, soothing, surprising.
A water high.
