I've been playing around with watercolor techniques. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I love it! It's just so much fun to see something come to life. I don't worry about my shadows being technically correct, or my colors being graphically right.. I just turn on music and paint. This was by far the most terrifying video I've ever made. I know there are those who know what they are doing, who know where the shadows should be and probably even giggle at my style... but that's ok. I wanted to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, try something different. You really never know what will inspire you and where it will take you. When I start painting with this technique... I have no idea of the end result. I pick some colors, but beyond that, nothing is planned.
Here's a quick video of me painting this card front. Give it a try... I think you'll be surprised how relaxing it is!
