Some watercolor daisies. Just some practice so I can suck less at flowers. (Insert obligatory gripe about vicious, watercolor-killing scanners here.)

This is amazing. One question though: (if you don't mind answering) --What brand of watercolors do you use? :]
The-Starhorse's avatar
Thanks. :) I've switched to Winsor & Newton / Cotman for most of my stuff, though this one I think had some Grumbacher in it.

What about you?

Well my work is pathetic compared to yours, but I really like the Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils. I think the pencils are easier to control compared to just the paints.
The-Starhorse's avatar
No it isn't. Your horses have real character, I think. Keep at it. :)

Yeah, that's the thing with watercolors. If you're looking for control, you may as well use another medium. Watercolor is sort of its own boss, and you just have to learn how to use its wild ways to your advantage. :) (Not saying I've figured this out yet, but the journey is fun.)

Oh you've definitely figured it out :]

These are beautiful, they make me miss my daisies. daisies don't grow here, my old house was surrounded by them, but not here. :(

We get daisies by the million here in spring. I love daisies. :) Thanks!

Daisies are fantastic, and you paint them beautifully!

Again, wonderful attention to detail. It makes me wish I didn't suck so much at watercolours. :(
The-Starhorse's avatar
Thanks, it was fun practice. I'll have to do more flowers. :D Aw, I'm sure you don't. I would have sucked like way if I hadn't had some classes.
