Watercolor – I’m not perfect

Watercolor splashes by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro

Another face builded up in watercolor only appeared in my art journal. This one was painted on my Canson ART ONE, which has paper suitable for sketching rather than watercolors. But I use this for art journaling, so perfection don’t come into equation.

O altă față în acuarelă a apărut la mine în jurnal. Aceasta a fost pictată în jurnalul Canson ART ONE care are hârtie mai potrivită pentru schițe decât pentru acuarelă. Dar folosesc acest caiet pentru art journaling, așa că perfecțiunea iese din ecuație.

Starting with a simple sketch out of imagination, this girl came to life little by little as I was adding the watercolors.

Începând cu o schiță simplă desenată din imaginație, această fată a prins viață puțin câte puțin pe mîsură ce adăugam acuarele.

It looks unfinished and not perfect at all, and this is what I wanted to express: in everything we can find imperfections, and that is part of life itself. I loved painting this one because it was fast and seemed easy to “complete” – it’s like an exercise I choose to make each day. 

Arată neterminată și deloc perfectă, dar exact asta am vrut să exprim: în tot ce ne înconjoară există imperfecțiune, la fel cum nici viața însăși nu-i perfectă. Mi-a plăcut să pictez această față pentru ca a fost rapid și mi s-a părut ușor – ca un exercițiu pe care aleg sa-l fac zilnic.

 

Pe curand,
Cristina
