World Watercolor Month Day 6

I consider myself to be a perpetual student, always learning, going to school or watching how-to videos.  This month I’m using “World Watercolor Month” as a way to force myself to learn watercolor painting.  I knew it was going to be challenging, which is why I tried to avoid this particular medium.  But last week, I bought a small set of watercolor tubes and thought I should put it to good use.

Feel free to practice with me.  I know from experience that watching others post can spark the creativity in you.  Let the art flow freely (which is harder for some than others).  I’d love to see what you are painting as well.  I learn from other artists all the time.

I have accepted the watercolor challenge and am willing to post whatever I come up with.  It won’t be perfect but I’m not striving for perfection.  Instead, I’m working towards understanding.  Mixing watercolors is completely different than acrylics and it seems much harder to blend in order to reach the color I’m looking for.  There’s plenty more to learn and I’d love for you to join me.
