Here are my first attepts at the stencil watercolor technique...Keep in mind that I am NOT at all skilled with use of watercolor...overcolored the first one, but I think it looks better. 2nd one I didn't overcolor but I totally boffed the eyes (scary!)
But I love the kind of abstract quality of them. Sort of Picasso-ish.
I am also putting in the original picture so you will be able to see what I started with - a picture from our engagement pictures (we just celebrated one year). I have 2 other shots that are from the wedding day that I'm going to do one for my sister of my niece and one of my nephew.
I think with each one I will get better...1 problem was I got uncolored masking fluid as I was afraid it would stain the paper...BIG MISTAKE!!
Please take a look and give me your honest feedback...Thanks!!
