Watercolor Cards

It’s no secret my creative talents don’t lie in art, particularly drawing or painting. However, since my best friend has been sending me pictures of her pretty watercolor cards that she’s been doing and it’s my day off, I figured I’d give it a try. Here are the cards I created. Nothing special, but I guess they’re aren’t too bad. It was definitely pretty fun! I’ll try and get better at it, but I need to buy some better brushes first. Have you tried watercolors? πŸ™‚

I apologize for the bad picture quality/background….I was lazy to make it look nice πŸ˜› whoops!

And this is a card I did with pen and coloring pencils (better than the rest, imo!) πŸ˜€ ❀

It wasn’t a total waste…

For my first college semester I studied Interior Design. I found out that I really, really didn’t like it, and that instead I love business. So I transferred and fortunately those credits aren’t wasted, they actually transfer as elective credits, which is awesome.

Besides that, however, I don’t consider my design semester a waste of time. I did learn things, and while most I won’t ever use again, some I will. Especially drawing.

I am not a very good drawer, or painter, and so for design of course you have to learn these things. Which is good because I wanted to learn them, I just never did. But now, after a whole 3 months of learning to draw, I finally have the basics and can actually sketch something that looks decent! It’s pretty exciting!

So the other night I was listening to something and I sketched this. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. I didn’t copy anything but I kinda thought of the desert when I drew it. I then colored it. So let me know what you think! (and if I should keep drawing!).
