Do a Little Doodle

This is for you, Mynx! I am venturing out of my written word genre to "do a doodle" for Mynx's contest to win one of her cute little paintings. I have never used watercolors before (heck, I haven't painted since grade school!), but after seeing all the fun you artist-types seem to have with your canvasses, I went out and bought a beginner's brush set, a paint set, and a pad of watercolor paper (too cheap to buy canvasses for my own pathetic attempts!) Any advice on using these babies would be greatly appreciated, as I really don't know what the heck I'm doing! Of the 3 paintings I made today, this one was the only one I that didn't make me either nauseated or laugh hysterically, so here it is, Mynx.

Check out Mynx's blog, Dribble, for more fun!

I just scared the dogs in screeching with delight.

This is fantastic.

My only advice is - much like what I told Mynx months ago: Just do it! And no, I am not a stinky ol' sneaker.

Just create. Let it come.

Very nice. I'd say you have some talent. A renaissance woman if there ever was one!

Lolamouse DaVinci? (grin)

I like it! I have no artistic talent whatsoever. I can draw cartoon elephants and cartoon cats. That's it!

I have been feeling like I should do some doodling too although it has been quite a while. :) I love the colors you used. It is very pretty. Who cares if you rival DaVinci. Did you have fun painting? :)
