When I first started painting a little over a decade ago, I started with oils, but oils were too messy and took too long to dry (seriously, I'd wait weeks sometimes for them to dry not good for gift giving). From there I moved on to acrylics and I really haven't looked back, sure acrylics dry fast but they can be manipulated with a little water, layered... I love them. I get a little lost in my paintings. I love creating them, I love mixing colors, I just love it all.
Well, I have always loved the way watercolors look and I kinda wanted to take a dive into painting with them so I started small, like painting Mother and Father's day cards, I really loved that, so the other day I painted this:
I had something totally different in mind when I STARTED painting, but this came out of my brushes. I'm not sure what I wanted to paint, but this was what wanted to be painted. Normally, I use about 3 brushes... With this, I used like 15 haha... Surprisingly, my brushes were still easier to clean than when using oil paints. Now that is a mother effer to clean.
