Introducing a Young Artist, Rachel, 12 yrs. old

  • Looking Out the Window at the Beach
I wanted to paint in watercolor when I saw my Aunt Liana painting on the beach as I was playing on the beach with my siblings and cousins at the Cape, which we all go to every year in the summer. At first I thought she was tracing something, or just copying a picture, but then I saw her from scratch make something outstanding. I asked her if I could try, thinking I would be horrible, but whatever, I thought, I'd give it a try. Earlier in that week I had seen some flowers that looked like the ones in my painting when my family went out to lunch. I really liked them, so I decided I wanted to paint them. The rest, I sort of just made up in my mind. I really enjoy painting flowers and beach scenes. Also, I'd really recommend my Aunt's blog to everyone because it's pretty awesome!!!
