I have always loved watercolors....ever since I saw my first Georgia O'Keefe painting. Her view of the American Southwest and what she could do with a brush and paint just blew me away. Seeing this card convinced me that I needed to attempt to create some watercolor designs and test my capabilities.
I've recently gone back to school to actually get some "book knowledge" on the craft I've been immersed in for the last 5+ years and it's been great. The design above gave me inspiration to try my hand at a watercolor daisy....simple and still very rudimentary, but it's a start.
Trying to control the pen and tablet on a computer is a little more tricky than using paper and pencil - you don't quite get the same fluidity. It doesn't help that my tablet only measures 5"x3.5" but, practice, practice practice! I'm having a blast learning, trying new things. Now that I know watercolor is the medium that I want to explore, I'm eager to continue because I have a focus and a goal. It's always been hard to start working on something because I was never sure where to start. I have the medium, the tools and the ambition....bring it on!
