I decided to learn how to watercolor last July.
I wasn’t really expecting much from myself since drawing or painting is not my forte. I’ve tried paint by numbers just to see how “painting” feels like but I know I’m just kidding myself when I say its “painting”. To tick painting off my bucket list, I decided to try and learn watercoloring. Since this is not really a serious endeavor, just wanted to dip my toes in so to speak.. I decided to learn it myself.
I bought a set of brushes and watercolors from daiso and started searching for watercolor books. But I’m more of a visual learner so I tried to google tutorials. I found a lot of watercolor experts who are very generous with their knowledge. One of them is Stan Miller. His videos are so easy to follow and they are really informative too. I actually surprised myself with my outcome!
My paintings (in order of painting)… I have no particular theme going on… I just paint what ever random thing comes to my mind. These are all painted from pictures.
I know my “works” (wow! big word!) aren’t really picasso/van gogh level. I definitely won’t be having any exhibits anytime soon, but I don’t think they’re that bad either. I think I’ve considerably improved since my first lesson. Don’t you think? (please say yes! *beautiful eyes*)
“Not bad kaye!” >pat myself on the back< and to Mr. Stan Miller – thank you, shukran, gracias, arigato, xie xie, salamat! for helping me discover how cool watercolor is.
I’m starting to fall in love with watercolor!
