Every artist faces stumbling blocks and has to choose whether to let those blocks stop them or inspire them to push forward into new growth. Watercolor is one of my stumbling blocks and this week I decided it was time to get busy and figure out this tricky medium. Most artists I know will say it's one of the hardest mediums. if you create a mark you don't like, it can be very hard to cover it up, or hide.
So "this here barn" is my first attempt at a more realistic watercolor approach (as opposed to the washes and fun color I usually use it for). There's a lovely red tractor in the barn, but the photo doesn't show it.
There are definitely things I would change if I could do it over...BUT I CAN'T because it's watercolor -_- (If it was oil paint, I could just keep pushing forward)

"I Like the Tree, the Horse, the Barn and Especially the Clouds"
(How's that for a title?!)
