Again, the body and webs of the frogs feet are supposed to be a creamy yellow. Not an icky, tea-stain, brown. However, While it is still a bit rough, the background is pretty good. Better than the first I am thinking.
So, why am I showing you these less-than-stellar artworks? Because I want you to see that it is okay to just play and learn and relax and not worry about perfect. I have spoken to many people suffering from depression over the past few months and there seems to be a common link. Perfectionism.
I am not perfect. You are not perfect. We will never be perfect. Perfect is not possible so stop beating yourself up over it. Leave it alone and walk away.
I am going to keep working with the water colors. I am learning and I will make glorious, fantastic, amazing, frustrating mistakes and that will be fine. The goal I am setting for is not perfection but to reach a point where I am pleased. The whole point of making art is to feed your soul. I highly recommend, whether you are dealing with depression right now or not, to do something creative each day, even if it's just for a few minutes, without expectations of perfectionism but rather to just feel how wonderful it is to create something.
