It is of a decorative bottle I found at Hobby Lobby sometime ago. It sits on the table in my reading nook with roses in it. Obviously, I chose not to draw the roses. And, I did not copy the label exactly. The idea was to practice drawing ellipses as well as shading. It also helped to begin honing my observation skills. I couldn't help having a little more fun and jazzing up the label with my watercolor pencils. Watercolor pencils are fun and easy to use. They can be a great tool for card making, scrapbooking, and/or mixed media. I am also learning more and more about various artists and discovering ones I like and don't like. One can learn a great deal from studying the masters. This is becoming a crash course in art history as well. I had no idea that learning to paint would entail so many different things. This journey may be a long one, but it is indeed going to be fun!
