water colors

I can't remember the last time I sat down and painted a picture. Last night, while the kids were at AWANA I decided to pull out some of the water colors the kids got for Christmas (I used the cake kind just because it was easier than getting out the tubes and my pallet) and my planner for inspiration. I really love Geninne's style, and since it's been so long since I painted anything I decided to start by copying one of her pieces featured in the planner.

I took these pictures last night, so the colors are a bit washed out because of the flash. I also couldn't get the intense colors that Geninne gets using the cakes, but all in all I think it turned out pretty well, especially considering I have not painted in years!
I enjoyed painting so much last night that I decided to spend some of my birthday money on some new paint supplies and I can't wait to spend some more time painting!
