Kali Sadhana Day 12
I also drew a card for the day from the Oracle of the Shapeshifters (Beyond Words, 2013 - US Edition): Dragonling Garden - A new world is born. One thing I see in this is the need to nurture my son today. At a different level, though, I see it referring to a new project.
After yesterday's session with the acrylics, I realise that they will take quite a bit of practice, experimentation and learning. They also require some time for prep and clean-up. So, I'll carry on with that painting when I have larger chunks of time available.
I'd still like to do something, and expand my skill set, though. Someone suggested watercolour pencils, a medium I've never used but which, in being pencil, seems like it might be a bit more within my comfort zone. And it can also be done in short bursts. I'm hoping that this will open up a new world of possibilities…
My first project is a red hibiscus flower, dedicated to Kali. I started drawing it this evening, but don't have time to finish it off. Still, it was fun, and I hope it'll look quite nice at the end - I hear watercolour is a little more forgiving than acrylics ;)
