What is wrong with this picture?
Last winter I took a Thursday night watercolor class after work. One evening the class had finished a 6-week project, so our instructor suggested we all relax and do a fun one niter. She told us to pull out our masking tape and design some trees on our cold press paper. We made our personal color choice for the background, blow dried our work, removed the tape, and finished by painting in the birch trees.
It didn't take very long, and we all had a fun time. The most entertainment arrived, however, when the quickies were placed on the white board for all to scrutinize and share. Someone noticed that there was something VERY wrong with my picture. I had hoped it would be overlooked. Never! A group of aspiring artists don't miss a lick!
We all laughed; I was embarassed. But as you can see I never threw the picture away.
Several of you have asked me to display one of my paintings. I hope you enjoy looking for the mystery. I apologize that my scanner is not large enough to photo the entire water color.
I am my worst critic. I also know that I am a beginner water color artist and need to be nicer to myself. Somedays I love to paint and some days I hate to paint. Heck! Somedays I just don't want to get out of bed.
Today my fear is that all of you will find all the other mistakes, too. I guess I'll take it like a man. (A man would say, I meant it to look like that.)
