Painting - Take 2

It's kind of sad that it took me 5 years to paint again... but so it is. My first painting was a silhouette of a couple... and it seemed pretty doable for a beginner like myself, so I decided since it has been 5 years, I would do another one of those. Obviously my first one was better, but I was also going for a different look this time.

I would also like to note that one of the reasons I haven't painted in so long is because I felt like I had to paint on canvas (which it would look better on canvas, which means I would need to find someone to give it to or somewhere to hang it after... which I have no place to hang my amateur paintings. My last one went to Brent and I never saw it again (good thing I took a picture). So I came up with the idea to paint in a sketch book. It won't be as smooth and pretty as canvas, but at least I can paint to my hearts content and just keep it all in a book. Hopefully this will get me painting more often and then my painting skills can improve and I will paint more complicated stuff. I don't want to get ahead of myself here though....  anyway, just remember I'm starting out simple.

I wish I could paint. I always thought that would be awesome.

I love it and I think silhouette's are so fascinating. What a great concept to have colored rain which just brings it to life. Reminds me of your India Festival pictures. You go girl! I might have to try something like this in the future. By the way did you use watercolor or acrylic?

Thanks Janet! I used acrylic.
