Unveiling the Magic: My Journey with Watercolor Painting

Hey there fellow art enthusiasts! Let me tell you a little story about my journey with watercolor paints. 

I've always been drawn to the ethereal beauty of watercolor art, but I'll be honest, I was a tad intimidated by the medium. Every time I tried my hand at it, my painting ended up looking like a waterlogged disaster. Not exactly the masterpiece I had envisioned.

But fear not, because I embarked on a quest to conquer the elusive art of watercolor painting! Picture me strolling through Michaels Store in Manhattan, when suddenly, I stumbled upon a gem of a book: "Watercolor The Easy Way" by Sara Berrenson.

As I eagerly flipped through its pages, I felt a surge of excitement. Could this be the answer to my watercolor woes? Without hesitation, I added it to my basket, along with a few extra art supplies because, well, who doesn't love an excuse to splurge on new goodies?

With 50 tutorials packed into this treasure trove of a book, I dove headfirst into my watercolor adventure. From September 15, 2023, to April 21, 2024, you could find me with a paintbrush in hand, tackling each project with gusto. Some days I'd squeeze in just 10 minutes of painting, while others saw me fully immersed from dawn 'til dusk.

What I love most about this book is its user-friendly approach. Each tutorial guides you through the process step-by-step, complete with suggested color palettes and brushes. 

By the time I reached the final page, something magical had happened. My confidence soared, my technique sharpened, and I found myself head over heels in love with watercolor painting. It's no longer just a hobby; it's become an integral part of my creative journey.

Here’s a sampling of my paintings. Out of the 50 project tutorials, these are my favorites!

So, if you're eager  to dip your toes into the world of watercolor but don't know where to begin, consider this your sign. "Watercolor The Easy Way" is your ticket to artistic bliss. Trust me, you won't regret it! 🎨
