Nothing is more beautiful than watercolors flowing across the paper.
Build upon your successes. (That doesn't mean do the same thing over and over.)
So, for this next one, I took this as a start - a small (fourth sheet) painting done over a year ago. From Florida trip photos, I'm sure.
Redrawn and done in lighter, cooler colors. It's also larger = half sheet.
We must learn to just enjoy what we are doing during the creative process. The joyful act of creating something beautiful or meaningful (or both) means more than an award or getting into a show based on a single judge's opinion. Create for you and the viewers will come!
