A lot of technique involved in watercolour. Maybe it’s not something other artists deal with, but I find I have to work and relearn things if I want to do something well that isn’t just totally an accident.
Sounds as if I’m down on it, because it never looks as polished to me as my black and white drawings. I still get a kick out of working with it.
I want to paint, rather than just people blankly looking around, pictures with life in them. That’s why I like the visible strokes, and backgrounds which aren’t totally uniform.
