Watercolour Crazy

I’ve fallen in love with watercolours. The strange thing is I can’t even explain why. There is just something about them that you don’t get with other paints.

Watercolour Crazy #1

There is nothing more satisfying than watching colour slowly mix together on a page. As the water slowly dries the paint changes into something new. The final result could be totally different from what you imagined it would be.

Call me crazy but I love it.

After the wash on the background, they take you places. πŸ™‚

    You can’t be an uptight watercolor painter – they’re too unpredictable. They cannot be tamed like acrylics. Watercolors command you. Don’t know how I missed you; but I’m really glad you liked my post because I like what you’re doing here, BCN!

    My favourite colurs are water colours and oil pastels. They open up so much possibilities and work on a number of medium. ❀ πŸ˜€
