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!
