Rekindled Enthusiasm --- New Watercolour Paintings


5 years ago, I got really interested in Watercolour Paintings. Then I stopped for some reason. Tried some recently, and feeling enthusiastic again.

I struggled to paint this boat (I am bad at sketching). But after third attempt, it turned out okayish.






Sometimes you do funny things when you're too enthusiastic. I suddenly felt that I needed new brushes as the bristles of my old brushes were all deformed (My fault as I did not keep them carefully). So, I ordered a new set. 

'I'd paint with my new brushes.' I thought and did not paint while I waited for my new set. Childish, isn't it? But, guess what? I received a wrong item.

John Lennon has rightly said that 'Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.' 



I replaced that item and ordered another set but I couldn’t wait anymore so I painted this. 




It's not that bad, is it? I realized that sometimes, the right time to do something is the time when you actually start doing it.

I was so engrossed in watching watercolour painting videos that I almost forgot about my two articles that I needed to revise and post. It was a bit odd. I am a writer. But you see, learning is beautiful and addictive (If you really want to learn). 

Recently, one of my blogger friends, Shilpa, posted a picture on Instagram, and I felt like painting it. I knew it would be tough as I am a beginner but I tried. It didn't turned out well (as expected) but Shilpa said she liked it (So kind of her!) and encouraged me. So I thought to try again, hoping to get it better this time. And this is my second attempt.



So my rekindled enthusiasm is doing good. How do you like my paintings? Please share if you have any suggestions.

  1. haha, that quote of John Lennon fits perfectly with your situation. It's true, sometimes we think we can't do something because of some little thing. It's good that you painted anyway, despite not having your new brushes :-) Your paintings look great! Happy PPF!

  3. I really liked your paintings but what I liked more is that you painted it because you liked doing it. It's such a great stress-buster.
