Playing with watercolors a little bit.  It was nice to just relax and paint.  I should probably branch out from purple and blues at some point though :D

Having good paper makes a world of difference. I used Arches paper for this one and it gives a lot more freedom to manipulate the paint than a lot of other papers do for me.

Very good advice, actually, and thanks for the rec. I have really cheap watercolors and not....real watercolour paper. Maybe that's why the medium frustrates me so much.

When I was younger in school we always used watercolors in art class but never used proper watercolor paper. I hated the medium so much! I can definitely say having the right tools makes a world of difference though. Even cheap watercolor paper is a huge step up from regular paper if you want to work with watercolors.

lol, it's a brand new set so there's still a lot of blue and purple :D ... it's also a set with extra blues and purples because I love blues and purples apparently :D
