Some watercolors I did through a course on Skillshare. I used the Kuretake watercolor set I posted a photo of in a previous post. I am getting a lot more comfortable with watercolor but I am still far from my own style and confidence. I’ve also learned that paper quality is very important. In the first two paintings, I used 90 lb Strathmore papers, and in the second two, I used 140 lb Strathmore papers. The difference is extreme. The 140 didn’t buckle and held on to water much better.
A couple of exciting things I’ve been up to. I like my old watercolor sets but wanted to try something a little more pricey to compare. I bought this Kuretake watercolor set and I’m really excited to get started on it. I’ll share swatches once I find the courage to actually use it. It’s so pretty, I’m nervous.
While I’m trying to build up courage to use the watercolor I decided to learn how to knit. I’m taking the class through Skillshare but I also found some really awesome tutorials on Youtube. I find that sometimes I have to combine different platforms of learning to get to my goal. The resources I will use are: Youtube, online paid classes, books, and magazines.
