Funny how when you’re learning something new, sometimes it turns out really good. But, after you have been practicing for a while, you become more critical and almost go backwards.
This watercolor is the second watercolor I had ever done. My teacher was Lola Jarvis, and she was really a good teacher. Lola was a perfectionist, and she demanded certain things from her students. She definitely brought out the best in her students, and I was lucky enough to have had her first.
Since then I have taken lesson from several watercolor artists including Helen Shafer Garcia whom I have become friends with, and to this day love and admire her work.
Today I only use watercolor in my visual, or traveling journals, and usually paint in acrylics or even oils.
