This weeks IF_ DISCOVERY_ Watercolor

This past week I began a watercolor painting class and discovered an old media all over again. I usually find myself reaching for colored pencils, pencils, and even my computer as a medium to explore my ideas. But, the computer always intrigued me more; not sure if the graphic designer in me was crying out more. Or, I think sometimes I chose the easier route. To paint something digital was always quicker. But, what I do miss is my acrylics, watercolor and the many other forms of media we artist use. So, the last time I did a watercolor painting was years ago. And even then, my colors always seem to be so dull and watered down. Now, I'm discovering the basics again. In a way thats good; because its discovering the basics that can bring you to a whole new revelation. Okay I stretched it a bit with this weeks topic but; Enjoy.

I don't think you stretched at all! It's exciting to discover (or rediscover) a new medium... I especially like the trees in the bottom piece. The colors are lovely.
