Watercolor for Beginners

Vacation and creative inspiration


Vacation is such a great time to clear your mind and soak up creative inspiration. My daughter and I spent the week visiting schools in the Carolina’s. We covered Clemson University, University of South Carolina, College of Charleston, and UNC Wilmington. All four schools had beautiful campuses. All were very different. We both loved the city of Charleston.

One highlight was visiting Wrightsville beach near UNCW. Walking out on the large pier that juts into the ocean was amazing. We could stand next to the breaking waves and the surfers, and continue further out above the ocean.

I certainly took tons of photos that I hope to paint from! I love that the shots are of different angles. Usually my seascapes are from the perspective of standing on the beach. See my collection of watercolor seascapes here.
