I always thought water colors looked like this:

You know, mix water and chalk, can't really see anything when you try to paint with it. But then I remembered that I bought a set of water colors in China,

^ that was what I had in mind while potting. obviously I am a very sucky potter. like REALLY sucky. the pot looked like a bee hive for a while, then was a baby carriage, and finally when it started to look somewhat like an elephant, I stopped.

fwap

^bird lady :P
Obviously I am very studious in physics class!
Ooh, I really like those, especially your self-portrait and the rooster.
Thanks! I do believe you are the first and only person who has liked my self portrait. :P
Aw. I love all you art. I just remembered, you have to make me some new pictures for all my classes! This makes me wanna go and finish that oil pastel piece I was working on 3 months ago...
Btw, love the giraffes on the ark. I don't know why but I think they're so cute (The species in general as well as those on your ark).
Haha, yay! Tell me which classes you want them for! :D Oh you can have my AP French one from last year if you want. :O I wanna see your oil pastel piece!
:D Yay! I get to have yours! Hopefully it'll bring me luck. I've heard horror stories about the French AP here. :P

Oh, and three others: Euro History, English Lang, and Precalc. :D I can show them off again. Everyone was all over the paramecium and euglena one you made for Bio.

I'll try to finish the piece up soon and take some pictures!
is the dude in the rocking chair in any way inspired by the cover of the AP french lit book?
of course not! ;P that was inspired by the image of tom fisher!
bahahhaha.oh how I love art 1. and the bird lady drawings ahhhhh!!


hahaha remember when the pot looked like a jesus carriage?
BAHAHAHHAA @ THE TONGUE
Oh Bernice, you're such an amazing artist. <3 You've now inspired me to go and bring out my 234598 art supplies and see what I can do.

Also, watercolors can come in tubes or cakes-it really just depends on which one you prefer. Generally speaking, the chalkier watercolors are the cheap things you find in like, Walgreens, while you'd find higher quality cakes in specialty art supply stores.

Your self-portrait makes me giggle. ^^
