Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass... by Andela1998 Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass... by Andela1998
..it's about learning to dance in the rain. :heart:

:bulletblue: So, first of all you should know that this is my FIRST watercolor work ever, so don't be too critical :D

:bulletred: I dreamed colorful rain once and that inspired me to do this :)

:bulletblue: I LOVE RAIN :heart: AND I ALSO LOVE RAINBOWS

:bulletgreen: This work represents this quote :
"Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass.....it's about learning to dance in the rain."

:bulletblack: done with watercolors and a black marker.
:bulletblack: sorry for the bad photography of it, it's taken with my camera :D

That's happened to me before too Sweating a little... I'm trying stuff out for the first time and sometimes it's decent, most of the time its not lol but given your talent I'm sure you'll make something even better soon. Keep at it! Even though all your art looks perfect to me XD

This is a totally great first watercolor work!
The colors are amazing, as well as the poses of the person(s). I like the "clouds" and the "wet ground", the "rain", ... And once again one can see that rain can be so beautiful! Furthermore, the title says a lot, you can not always wait for better weather, just go outside and enjoy life!

OMG! Love this!! Dancing in the rain is so much fun! Even though they're just silhouettes, I can tell that you are really skilled in your abilities to draw human bodies in motion. My only comment would be that some of the silhouettes are different sized, and it would create a more fluid look if you kept to a uniform size with all of them. Otherwise, awesome!

Thank you very much. I'm really glad you like it ;) I understand your point, but I actually wanted them to be differently sized because...everyone can dance in the rain (be happy). However you look like, shouldn't actually matter..nobody should judge anyone by their looks. that's the reason I painted silhouettes. :)

I painted the clouds first and then I put big drops all over the clouds and turned the paper vertical so the drops can slip over the paper.
