These are my attempt at using watercolors. Last year I bought a watercolor kit and am just now getting around to playing with it. The paper is Arches 140lb coldpress (which I have no idea what that really means) and the paints are liquid Rembrandt. What I found was that the paper really makes a difference, because I had some other (apparently less quality) and the Arches worked much better.
Inspiration came from an Art Tutorial on the Daily Paintworks site showing a mini demo on how to make these drops by Barbara Fox. Check it out! DPW is also hosting a
Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser, by purchasing donated artwork.
I got a little brave and tried to paint this Rosemary plant that was brought inside from the monster storm. Usually I paint in oils and some acrylics, so this was definately a different medium to play with.
