Goofin' Around

 Thought I'd start another bird today.
Val's lesson this week was about ink resist. I'll try that later on. 
I just wanted to goof around with my paints for a little bit.

Trying to match colours and laying down some areas.
I tend to work slowly. Wish I didn't. I'd love to be looser, but 
my tendency is to be precise.
 Hmm . . .

That's looking really good already. I always felt the same, that I was too tight and not loose enough... and then I discovered botanical art, and decided that sometimes precision is okay. As you grow in confidence and get to understand your paints, you'll loosen up. It's a bit like learning to ride a bike. You are careful at first, but after a while, you'll be able to cycle without holding onto the handlebars! Just keep at it!
