Aesthetics – Watercolours

The idea started a few months ago. My friend and I were trying to figure out what to do to amuse ourselves during the incessant lockdown and suggested we could do some painting. Initially I scoffed at the idea given my non-existent artistic prowess (pretty sure the last time I did art was when I was 13 years old, and feedback on my performance was far from glowing). But my friend, who is far more proficient in the arts, convinced me that there was an easy way to do this. She proposed that we traced Pinterest paintings from the internet and just colour it in with paint. So that’s how it started. It rapidly became a therapeutic outlet for a somewhat turbulent year with multiple pitfalls and disappointments. One goes into a peaceful trance when engaged in manifesting an aesthetic product. I’ve recently engaged an art teacher and the journey of technical proficiency has barely begun. But these were the few things that gave me some peace in turbulence.
