A Watercolor Painting – Not


A friend told me about this interesting method of painting. Take a photo that you like and turn it into a black and white. Then fade it considerably. Then print it out on watercolor paper and use watercolors to “paint” over it. Sounds like fun except that when I printed the photo I was going to use I couldn’t bear to put a paintbrush to it. I love it the way it is. I will have to try again on another photo. This is my Darla.
