I have finally graduated! For the last 4 months I have done all my water colors in my sketch book , part of the reason for that was because I didn't feel like I knew enough about water color and blending it to waste W.C paper. Well, I have figured out that I do know enough and that the paper makes all the difference in the world!!!
No "playing" for me tonight, this time I wanted to paint from real life and make this peach as close to real looking as I could. I like the way it came out!

You got it! This is beautiful and it looks like using good paper is helping instead of hindering you. I look forward to seeing more!

Thank you all for your sweet comments. Felicity, I will help in any way that I can, but I think a lot of it is just not being afraid to layer on color andtrying things out.
