Practice, Practice, Practice!

Practice puts brains in your muscles.

Sam Snead

I have been neglecting my watercolor practice lately, so it was nice to get a little time with it this weekend. While these pictures still aren’t close to those of the YouTube instructor, I am fairly pleased with how they turned out. I still need more work with blending colors and choosing those that fit well together, but I know in time it will come. I generally like my paintings better after I set them aside for a bit ๐Ÿ˜‰

Practice is the best of all instructors.

      You are too kind, Janie! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿงก The teachers on YouTube make it look so effortless, but not so for me. ๐Ÿ˜„ Someday, with much more practice, I hope to be able to know the colors better and to be able to just sit and paint without feeling the need for a tutorial. ๐Ÿ˜„ I truly appreciate your kind encouragement! โค
