Oh, What Fun!

"Simple Flowers"

11" x 15" Watercolor

Well, I think I fell down the rabbit hole! Went to workshop today and had them teach me about watercolor. Now, I know this painting is very simplistic and childish, but -- What Fun! I can't wait to play with some more!

What's so interesting to me is that painting with watercolors is about the exact opposite of painting with oils! You paint light to dark, instead of dark to light -- you want all the paint to run together -- and you can dry it fast with a hair dryer! And, you know how I love Instant Gratification!!!

Must go now -- the paint is calling me!
