Non-Judgmental Watercolors

Painting has a huge history that we, as painters, can never escape. I use watercolor as a way to step away from the grand idea of painting and give myself the freedom to just have a bit of fun.

I call these non-judgmental because when painting or drawing there are things that my subconscious will judge not serious enough for art. For instance painting Santa fighting a ninja which you will see below. Judging an idea like that will not only influence what I don’t make will force me to question what I “should” make or what is “worth” making. I feel like that is a shame and so I allow myself the playfulness of painting without judgment.
