I have been wanting to learn watercolor painting for years but it is very frustrating to me considering I've always been an Oil and Acrylic painter. With watercolor, control is a big issue for me and I like having control. After gathering up a few supplies that I would need to do some experimental painting-I sat down and just played with the water to paint combinations. I started with making some washes. Well that was OK, but I have a long way to go with that. Then I tried my hand at painting some bricks. LOL! Those ended up being the fence on the left and the red lines on the right! It's a good thing that I'm a mixed media, altered art artist or these would have ended up in the trash! I had fun for a few hours-I learned some valuable lessons about watercolors and how they act and I learned that I want to keep at it as time allows! As in everything, it takes practice!
