As an artist, I have always been drawn to the fluid and unpredictable nature of watercolour painting. There is something about the way the paint mixes and blends on the paper that just speaks to me in a way that other mediums don't.
But it hasn't always been easy. When I first started out, I struggled to get the hang of the medium. The watercolour paints seemed to have a mind of their own, and I had a hard time controlling them. I would get frustrated and end up with a muddy mess on my paper more often than not.
But I didn't let that discourage me. I continued to practice, and over time, I started to get a better feel for the paints. I learned about different techniques for controlling the flow of the paint, such as wet-on-wet and dry-brush, and I began to experiment with different brush strokes and layering techniques.
As I continued to practice, I also started to pay more attention to the world around me. I began to see the world in terms of color and light, and I started to develop a sense of what works and what doesn't in a painting.
And slowly but surely, my paintings started to improve. I began to get more confident in my abilities, and I started to take on more challenging subjects. I even started to receive positive feedback from friends and family, which was a huge boost to my confidence.
Today, I am proud to say that I have developed my own style and voice as a watercolor artist. It hasn't been an easy journey, but it has been a rewarding one, and I am grateful for the opportunity to share my art with others.
