Confession. The last few times I've done "watercolor paintings" I've really only used acrylic paint and watered it down. So in April I bought real set of watercolor cakes and began to practice. My grandma was so sweet and gave me a whole new special set of brushes just for watercolor. I've always been more comfortable with acrylics- even when I go for a watercolor look. However, as of late I've enjoyed this change in medium. I've been doing a few florals for some practice.
