18x12 Winsor Newton Professional watercolors on Arches cold press.
I splurged on some watercolors and took an actual class. I will be doing more now that I have good materials... they really do make a difference!
I had gone to a Ted Head watercolor workshop recently and I learned quite a bit about handling some brand-new professional type watercolors.
Up until now I have only been practicing, so I've been using the small pans --typically Koi or some Grumbacher pans. I finally went out and got some professional Winsor & Newton tubes, got a pallet, got a sheet of Arches...stretched it (my first time) and --wow what a difference.
I showed my first painting on Facebook and the response reminded me I needed to be doing more art! So I was asked to do a magnolia. I definitely will be doing more!
