For the love of watercolours....


For-the-love-of-watercolours

These days, I've been a little obsessed with watercolours. You won't believe how many books I've read or how many YouTube videos I've watched...and I'm still pretty terrible at harnessing the magic of watercolours.

The beauty of watercolours lies in the transparency and luminosity of the pigments. They lose their lustre when you "overplay" with them. Which is what I tend to do...*sigh* 


The key is to build up the colours layer by layer...and to keep practising...


Meanwhile, I'll enjoy the process of growing my watercolour collection...*winks*
