i have always frowned upon watercolours thinking they were only used in 'pretty' landscapes. with my youngest running around, not yet 2 years old, and no extra room to spread out and paint with oils i decided to try watercolours. it took a while and a good few sheets of watercolour paper before i got into them. i still have a way to go but i love the idea of the layering. the patience part is still a little problematic as i want to dive in with the deeper colours..
i have really enjoyed the process and have moved from arctic portraits to human ones :)
