White Text - 06

whitetext was a private livejournal account I kept following a breakup in 2004. The entries came from a deep depression. They have been recollected here for data preservation.

last night i needed something creative to come out of me. i’ve been on the computer too much, doing too much, awake, just too much. i went to walmart and bought cheap watercolors, a palette and brushes and some very cheap paper. this is the result of the first one. i’m not very good with watercolors, but they are so wonderful to play with. i love the feeling they give in my hands and i love how they force themselves to come out.

in high school we played with watercolors. it was my worst medium and very frustrating. later i had help from a friend that showed me you could just use the paint differently than we’d be taught and have more control and fun. i still wasn’t very good, but i was albe to keep the paint on the canvas. it made me smile, then.

i think there will be more of these. maybe with digital emphasis, maybe without. it’s all in the air right now.

i had an idea for something creative. a comic-styled story with digital art, watercolor and pen & ink. the story would be about fate, elements, love, and above all, silence. i’ll continue working on it and perhaps this watercolor stuff will work out and be usable.
