Why I Love Watercolors

I spent some time just playing with my watercolors... just letting them mix and blend within shapes I drew.  That's my favorite thing about these paints.  They can be unpredictable, but have so much expressive potential.

It's funny to think that back in college, I was so NOT into watercolors.  I told myself I would only love oils... HA!  Then I became a stay-at-home mom and oils weren't the best option.  They're so messy!

Over the past three years I have totally fallen in love with watercolors and I'm really addicted to painting with them :)  They never do exactly what I expect them too, but that's part of the fun!

  1. Very pretty. It's funny how our perceptions of what we "should" like change as we get older. And, as much as I don't like getting older, it's nice to be more comfortable with who I really am.

  4. i love watercolor for the same reason - its unpredictability. my gram painted in oils, mostly repros of the masters, but that never attracted me. i love your free-spirited style - keep up the great work!
