Water colour

There is a few mistakes, but I won't go into that.
I did do some more work on the piece after these pictures were taken.
I tried doing a white tulip, which failed miserably.
Then I wanted to paint the background blue, but that also turned out wrong.
So the result is not so nice. In fact I am a little embarrassed it could go so wrong..
Which is also why you will not get a chance to see the actual finished result.

It is rather difficult to do water colours I find, and complex.
Patience and lots of layers are essential with water colouring.
We live and we learn.

Right now I got 3 water colour palettes. I had one before hand, but after my mothers mother died in January this year, I got all of her drawing things. Including 2 water colour palettes.
My gran was a lively lady, and liked to draw and paint.
It is from her I have gotten my interest. Every holiday in Copenhagen where I visited my grandparents, we would set up all of her things on the dinning table, and then get cracking.
Sweet memories.

Fan of Jane Austen much? - Me, oh yeah.
Now you can get cookie cutters as a man silhouette and as a lady silhouette from Mr Darcy and Jane Austen.
What is not to love?

I just made homemade ravioli. Ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and fresh basil.
True some of it failed, holes appeared. There was however enough for dinner and a bit extra, oh and portion of normal tagliatelle that is drying.  It was yummy!
