No Lines :: Sans lignes

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.
— Phyllis Diller

For today’s painting I decided to plunge head first! I painted with hardly any pencil lines and especially with no ink lines. I love drawing and using fountain pens, so I automatically grab a fountain pen when about to start a “painting”… but is it a real watercolour painting if it has ink lines? So I managed to defeat my urge to pick up the fountain pen, and just painted with watercolours. I hardly recognize what I have done, but the biggest hurdle is over… just by doing it. Yes!

Pour la peinture d’aujourd’hui, j’ai décidé de plonger la tête la première! J’ai peint sans lignes d’encre et seulement un petit peu de crayon. J’aime dessiner et utiliser des stylos à plume, donc automatiquement je prends  un stylo alors que je m’apprête à commencer une “aquarelle” … mais est-ce une vraie aquarelle si elle a des lignes d’encre? Donc, j’ai réussi à vaincre mon envie de ramasser le stylo, et j’ai peint une aquarelle. Je reconnais à peine ce que j’ai fait, mais le plus grand obstacle est passé … je l’ai fait. Oui!
