1. Vibrancy - Pans, tubes, liquids - I paint with all. Check out Pebeos' Colorex range, I use them for almost everything.
Learn to let go. Not everyone in your life is meant to stay.
3. Transparency - I envy those who achieve it! So dreamy and a pleasure to watch. Check out Sophie's work here and you will know what I mean.
4. Effects and methods - Dy on wet, wet on wet, wet on dry - the possibilities are endless. I like to try the salt sprinkle technique and dab with tissue for texture trick.
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end…

5. Patience is a virtue. Thanks to the digital medium I completely turn impatient when I draw on paper. Also the inability to instantly 'undo' drives me nuts. Lol! But I have learnt a great deal on how to wait (for the paint to dry) before I add another layer. I therefore sit with a large mug of coffee when I do watercolors.
Do you love watercolors too? Share your experience with me here, I'd love to know and learn from you.
