Yesterday I pined to figure out what new subject I should try to tackle in watercolor. I wanted something that would really marry well with the medium and allow me to capture the essence of it. Finally, after much pondering (ok, and a Google search for “popular motifs” in an attempt to stay trendy), I had this inspiration to paint a jellyfish! Watercolor, water, what’s in water…jellyfish, right? That aside, I just think they are beautiful and so graceful. Their image lends itself to the watercolor medium, as they often look like live paintings to me as they float through the water. So here is my first attempt at one! I hope I can dabble in a few more types and colors; I hope to discover more about them as I explore each new one as a subject. Inspiration…sometimes hard to find, but so exciting when it finally comes!
