Playing with water colour

I don't even remember what was the last time I pick up a brush and paint. Thanks for the coordinator in swap bot who is holding water color ATC, this give me an excuse to buy a whole set of water colour supplies and wondering what I should draw.

Then, I found Lettedset, telling me that I don't have to be a painter to mess with water colour. So I spent two hours giving birth to my 11 giraffe silhouettes.

I look at them and I say to myself, I am not that suck at art at all.. The simplest way to make myself feel satisfied and happy.

You should paint too!

Beautiful looking giraffes there. :) Everyone has the freedom to create, as it comes from deep inside. It's not a matter of 'how good' it's just a matter of willingness to let go and put your expressions on paper.

Oh, I just love the giraffes. I have never done any painting, but this makes me want to try. Maybe this summer...
