I don't remember how I voted, but I honestly think this group is the best watercolor group I encountered on dA. No other group I belong to (even among not watercolor oriented ones) shares so many hints, polls and tips with members, even if they allow more deviations in month/week. Knowledge I got from this group is very precious to me I also like that there is no quality selection, because everyone can get exposure this way and chance for improvement thanks to more experienced members. And the group isn't overwhelmed with submissions thanks to submission limit, which makes people think before they add a painting and submit only what they really think needs exposure. I really appreciate admins' work on this group and wish there were more groups like this keep up the good work!
i voted 10! im really learning a lot from here! keep it up with the informative journals and such :] Although sometimes i can't understand half what you lot are talking about XD because im only a beginner/ or just a hobbyist when it comes to watercolor. i don't have formal schooling so it's hard to keep up sometimes... maybe if sometimes you can elaborate more so everyone can relate and learn from each other That's all! This is still the best watercolor art group! 10 10 10! XD
I like seeing the wide variety of watercolor techniques and styles that people use. Your group has allowed me easily to find several people worth following and forge a few contacts with people who use the same medium I do.
You also may not realize this, but this is my second time to DA. I left back in 2008 because I was dismayed at the lack of ability to find decent work on this site that did not revolve around pornographic imagery (or highly sexual imagery) popping up on the front page. Had I known about groups such as this one, I may not have left because as I mentioned, the groups allow me to find work that is relevant to my interests without sifting through pages and pages of things I am not interested in.
Your group also allows me to find 'less popular' artists to watch. Unfortunately, the front page is not really designed to expose all artists fairly.
I think this group is pretty great. I'm a beginner so all the WC tips journals are a great resource. I am always so glad to see that there are so many members who give their opinions, techniques, and advice. So for me, I find this group a great resource.
