Teacup watercolour - Tasse de thé à l'aquarelle

Many of my favourite bloggers have been playing with watercolours lately and I felt the call too. So this is my first attempt, in a long time, at playing with watercolour. I've never been a "realist" painter but I still like to try. I still need to work on my shadows but this one will stay as it is since I already tore around it and glued it in my current journal.
Plusieurs de mes bloggueuses préférées ont joué avec des aquarelles dernièrement et j'ai entendu l'appel moi aussi. Alors voici mon premier essai, depuis plusieurs années, de jeu à l'aquarelle. Je n'ai jamais été une peintre "réaliste" mais j'aime quand même essayer. J'ai encore besoin de travailler mes ombrages mais celle-ci restera telle-quelle puisque j'ai déjà déchiré autour et l'ai collé dans mon journal actuel.

You did a good job. I haven't done any watercolors for a long time. For a while it was the only thing I did.

Even in Museums there are very few "real" painters. I think the whole point is to paint and see what happens. Even if you paint regularly, to try new things. Art is dangerous and daring - otherwise it wouldn't be a calling.

Bravo, Sophie. Les couleurs sont bien réussies. Développer un style personnel, c'est ce qui compte...

Watercolors are so free and fun, aren't they? Your painting is lovely!
