Dreams and Experimenting with Watercolour

Image

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve painted using watercolours, and I decided I wanted to get back into it. Last night I bought a new set of paints and I wanted to test them out.

I love all the textures and flow you can achieve by just adding or taking away water from the paints, without having to switch brushes or tools. It’s easier to stretch watercolours and it’s also a lot easier to clean than oil paints (and the smell isn’t so strong).

Unfortunately, my camera doesn’t really do the painting justice (I need to get better lighting in my room!), but I happen to love this painting and am very satisfied with it. The flow of the brush and the pale hues keep it very feminine, but still somewhat chaotic, in a sense. I’m tempted to make my next painting another free-form one like this just because it was so much fun!
