Today is Every Inchie Monday and the prompt for the day is "plum." I've been wanting to try my hand at watercolors, which I haven't tackled since school just about and the subject is worthy of a personal challenge.
I know I have some decent materials around, but where is the question. So, I picked up some paint at WalMart. The paints are ok, but the brush just disintegrated with every stroke. I used Daley and Rowney paints, Fluid watercolor paper and Morton's Kosher salt. It deserves another try when I have a brush that can do the job. But for now, this is an honorable attempt. (The latest catalogue from Dick Blick arrived yesterday with a sale on some very nice watercolor paints and crayons. hmm...)
The source image for my project came from Autumn Makes and Does, where I found a beautiful photograph of plums and an interesting recipe for jam. (I'm not thinking I'm making any money from watercolor painting and I only intend to hang this little artwork on my fridge). Now to take a look around to see what others are doing with their inchies!
