This is the 25th print in my shop! My friend Christie gave me the best tip for loosening up. Now before every painting I am painting horizontal lines, vertical lines and numbers all over my cheapo watercolor paper. This is so helpful because even if you think you don't need to warm up, you do. Every time.
I love learning more and more about this medium. It can be tricky but I enjoy how the colors melt into each other and how you can't plan everything. There is a little bit of surrendering that is involved and it's nice.
