According to fellow blogger Laura at createarteveryday.com, July is official World Watercolor Month! Check out her blog for great watercolor tips and ideas. In keeping with this I’m going to take a shaking step into the watercolor media. I’ve always wanted to learn, I have a bargain set of 12 Daler Rowney tubes (if you even call them that) but I’m saving for a set with a few more color choices.
Yesterday I watched about 10 YouTube tutorials and got some really great tips. So today I used the back of my test page yesterday. I didn’t expect to like what came out so I wasn’t worried about it showing through. As with all things art, expect the unexpected. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome even with the limited palette choice. I don’t know if I will get a watercolor every day this month done but I will certainly be doing more. Thanks for the encouragement Laura!
