life this week: watercolor

There has not been much worth talking about this week--it's one of those weeks where I'm just trying to survive until Friday, ya know? Do you ever feel that way? It's a rough one, guys.

There was a bright spot, though: my brother came over Sunday and we tried some watercolor painting. He's messed around with techniques and things before, but it was the first time he had made an actual painting, too. I've never done a painting in my entire life, or really even messed around with paints, aside from craft projects. This was way different from painting a cake topper, though!

I really really enjoyed it, though! He left his supplies at the apartment, so I have a weekend project, after I survive these two 12-hour workdays. Friday come soon!

This was my first attempt. I rather like her.

Another random idea. This is seriously so much fun. New hobby!

This is my brother's first watercolor painting. He trumps me in all things artsy--our dad was super super talented artistically, and I think my brother got the lion's share of art genes.


  1. This looks like a lot of fun. I used to paint a little in high school and it was always so relaxing. I'd love to paint again some time.

    12 hour work days sound like no fun--I hope your weekend comes soon and that you have a really relaxing one!

    P.S. The fox is my favorite. Very cute!

    1. Thanks! It was a blast! Hopefully I'll actually be decent at it after awhile. :) I always shied away from artsy things in high school & college because I didn't think I was any good at them. I didn't realize how fun they could be regardless.
