I’ve been doing a lot of creative soul-searching lately, and decided a few weeks ago to get back to my artistic roots by actually crafting images with my hands — specifically watercolor paintings, pencil sketching, ink drawings, etc. Watercolor in particular is a profound draw for me because it’s so challenging and the results can be so satisfying. I last did serious watercolors some 25-years ago (the painting above was done nearly 30-years ago as an en plein air sketch), so I’m a bit rusty at present.
I’m not giving up photography altogether, but have decided to ease back on taking photographs. I’ll continue to post images, but now it’ll be more of a mixed media offering — photos, drawings, watercolor paintings, etc.
