Wedding Watercolor

With a blog name like “Confessions of a Craft Addict,” you’d think there’d be a little more diversity in the crafting. Alas, no, as I’ve been in full-tilt sewing mode for the past several years. I do more than just sew, though, despite all evidence to the contrary.

My sister-in-law and her husband will celebrate their anniversary next week, which led to thoughts of our wedding present to them. Shortly after they eloped, they came to visit us and I snapped some pictures, including the one that inspired this painting. I had not touched a paintbrush in maybe 15 years but decided  I had to paint this.

Sepia-toned watercolor seemed the best choice and I still think I was right on that. There are a few things I think I’d change but I’m pretty pleased with it, especially since I had not painted in such a long time.

  1. You know you are going to make people very envious of your seemingly endless talents, don’t you?!!
    Beautiful painting. Has it inspired you to paint more now?

  2. Beautiful! Like riding a bike isn’t it, once you pick up the brush it all comes back naturally. I would be so happy to get that as an anniversary present.
