Just have the desire and the magic will happen
It is around 25 years since I was painting with watercolors. These days I decided to give it a chance and try again:) Luckily, nowadays online tutorials are available for almost any topic of interest – just have the desire.
So I started from a blank page and the magic has happened!
My tutorials for watercolor techniques

How to make it happen if the “inner I” resists even to try
I need to say, it is not easy just to try, it is almost impossible because of “inner brake”. It seems that “I am not good enough, I can not paint like Claude Monet, the result of my drawing will be ugly, it will not be the same good as in a tutorial”, and so on, and so on…Do you know this feeling?
So, we made it together with friends to have fun. I wrote for the friends of mine to join the tutorials and we shared the results after a week. And I hope we will do it again!
The results that make you feel uplifted
The magic of creation is just like this – you make it by yourself and now you feel great. What could be more valuable for a day? You feel great – that is all you actually need!
Honestly, I was not very satisfied when compared my results with the tutorial drawing, but, who cares?:) Who cares?:) The process of creation is like this – any result is incomparable, because it is unique. The moment you create something – you make it unique.
The paper for watercolor is important. I used 480 g/m2, but it could be 300, I guess not less. Because it is watercolor, the watercolor paint need lots of water to catch the pigments of colors, so the type of paper is important.
I liked two techniques: salt technique and wet-in-wet technique. For me they seem as amazing possibilities to draw things.
Next step would be trying to paint something using salt or wet-in-wet techniques. Lets see later:)
