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, [...]
