Today, I decided to try playing with just three colors again in this quick little doodlewash of crème caramel and coffee. I used a reference photo for this, and would have referred to the dessert as flan, but my partner Philippe, who is Parisian, assured me it’s actually crème caramel. Either way, I’m now just craving dessert and a bit sad that it’s not actually sitting in front of me. The dollop of whipped cream is the part that’s getting me excited as I simply love the stuff. In fact, I love it so much that I would happily forgo ice cream in exchange for this freshly whipped magic. Imagining it now, is just some weird form of torture.
I’m running incredibly short on time tonight so this post is going to be short. Just happy to have made my post for our amazing World Watercolor Month! It’s been incredible to see all the amazing variety of art that’s being produced during this challenge. And sure, it’s intimidating to see some of the work being produced, but it’s also exhilarating! I look at an amazing piece of watercolor work and think, wow, I want to be able to do that! Even if I can’t actually do that yet, attempting new things feels like I’m going on a real adventure! Which I always love! And somehow, I just don’t care about the outcome, the journey is entirely the fun part!
