Hello fellow watercolor lovers. Welcome to the Best of February 2016 feature. Again - warm welcome to our two new moderators Art-by-Cricket and vivapo. It's a real pleasure having such talented artists strengthen the watercolorists team.
As usual selecting only ten each month is quite the challenge - here's what I was able to come up with oh and, don't forget to vote in our Best of February poll
Punk Girl by AnastasiaBudarina
In your face color and super hero self confidence makes Punk Girl one of the top ten selected this month.
.Anxiety. by CarlaNatalie
The intensity of anxiety depicted by vivid color and expression prove the versatility of watercolor to express a span of emotion - from extreme self confidence shown above to terrifying anxiety depicted here.

Impeccable color and perfect balance bring the wonder of nature inside.

Justaroundthecorner... by NeoNative
L'Ile Rousse is a laid-back seaside town, lying at the foot of the Balagne hills. It has beaches of white sand, and a bustling marketplace with cafés huddled beneath the plane trees in the village square. And yet, it reminds me of the Greenwich Village side streets I explored as a young woman. (Greenwich Village, NYC : For over 100 years, this small area below 14th Street and west of Broadway has been a Mecca to the creative, rebellious and Bohemian.

So often watercolor displays soft, pastel qualities certainly obvious in the reference. rougealizarine has, however, made this image her own with intense color that vibrates off the paper.
Free by Takuichi
I this piece. For me it's a perfect depiction of JOY!!! The joy of being alive of feeling bliss and being FREE. A feel good image I could stare at for hours and hours and hours.
Forgotten by ThreeLeaves
