When I was in third grade my art’s teacher almost killed my creativity forever. She pointed out how awful was my collage of the Puerto Rican parrot with a face that stated that there was no hope for my skills. Thankfully, the fact that you couldn’t tell where was the head of my parrot didn’t mean that later on I wouldn’t be able to produce some sort of art creation.
Even though the only thing I can draw that’s up to standards is a happy face, I have a small and cheap collection of watercolors and a drawing pad just to play sometimes. Every now and then I even get a few ideas of things that look like real drawings. Like this one:
I doodled that in the margins of a training hand-out at work and kept the papers to re-do it in watercolors. I’ve only watched some youtube videos of people doing watercolors and with that I wing the process.
Though it’s nothing extraordinary it’s one of the few art pieces (ha) I’ve done that I like. Maybe someday I’ll decorate something with it.
