This Underwater Bliss watercolor painting was my second attempt at my #watercolorwednesday challenge I decided to embark on. What a mission! I’m so used to painting in oil paint, and sometimes I feel I’m a little too bold, too much. I decided to use watercolor as my medium to learn to be more gentle.

Is it working?

I’m not sure yet. I have noted that it has become easier to let the water lead me a bit but I am still holding onto the watercolor, yearning for thickness and my palette knife. It’s evident in most if not all of my work- thick, impasto style layering. Watercolor is a whole other ball game. You literally let the water and flow lead you.

The reason why I decided to go specifically with the reference picture was that I am exploring water as a general theme for my work. Many times and in many situations, I feel like I’m either drowning in emotion or feel so uncomfortable, like a fish out of water. This #watercolorwednesday challenge I believe forms part of my mission in creating water-inspired works with meaning. The new works that I’ll be creating will all form part of my memoir that I am going to publish at the end of this year.

Yes, I’ve been working on this book for two years, but finally when I shared a truly inspired idea with my mentor-friend-bra, Scott Eric Williams, it truly felt like the time was right to finish the book. It finally comes together.

I have yet to watch a few YouTubers who specialize in watercolor to learn, but for now, I’m very happy with learning to let the medium do the teaching and I just observe.

There’s magic in just observing and flowing positively. There’s no fear because there are no expectations.

Just, bliss.

    I fell in love with this watercolour the moment Yvette posted it to her Instagram.
    I loved it so much I immediately “fished out” if she was selling it so that I could purchase it, which I did!!
    She reminds me so much of my mermaid tarot deck and I absolutely love this piece!!
