Watercolor Sample Collection

Someone asked if I could share some of my watercolor projects.  I do share them now and then at the end of blog posts, but I thought I’d just do a post with a collection of some of the watercolor experiments I’ve done recently.

For those who don’t know, I started doing watercolor in November (2018) as sort of a personal attempt at art therapy.  The holidays are difficult for me and I thought perhaps if I developed a new hobby with some opportunity for creativity, it’d help distract me.  I also thought it might be a good way to practice being mindfully in the moment of an activity.  It worked on all fronts.  🙂

So here’s a small sample of some of my watercolor projects.  Some are completely original works and others are based off online tutorials.  I’ve basically been learning to paint through YouTube videos.  🙂
