In 2019, I took an online course through Domestika.org called Illustrated Portrait in Watercolor. This class taught me better foundations to work with watercolors. As I do different studies with different mediums, I learn more of each one of them. I also face more insecurities and fears than others. I remember with each layer of this painting feeling I was going to mess the piece. The insecurity increased when it was time to do the background which I left for last.
There’s no easy path to face our insecurities, other than moving forward, and take one step at a time. In this case, all I could do was scan each progress, and keep working on the next layer. And having the progress scanned, it gave me a bit of relief. If I ended up making a mistake, I still had the scanned image which I could still offer as a print.
