You know the old adage about always drawing and painting using the best materials that you can. Well, sometimes your best work comes out of not "caring" enough to use the very best. When I am faced with a beautiful, clean sheet of watercolor paper and I have done a thumbnail sketch and even a preliminary drawing with color, I feel like I have invested a lot of time and effort and the end product better be pretty good. When I just sit down and start drawing on any old piece of paper and drop in a little color, then magic happens. I haven't invested emotional time or energy, just a lot of joy and satisfaction. Well, I found myself painting with friends the other day and this is what happened. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
