I love to do watercolors. When I’m painting a watercolor I get lost in the process. It is sort of like a meditation. Watercolors are challenging as you are not really in control. The water and paint have minds of there own. But when everything comes together it’s magical.
I usually base my watercolor subjects on scenes I have photographed. Not only is it good reference for me it also brings back to the moment and place I was at when I created the photograph. This adds to the mystical experience I have when creating the painting.
