World Watercolor Month (2/31)

According to fellow blogger Laura at,  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!
