Looks good but not too detailed; then again, maybe you can't expect that from watercolour.

I'm impressed! It actually took me a moment to see the dragon, with all its great lines, past the simplicity of the cat.

I love this, especially the way the warm and cool colors mingle but don't actually mix. It breaks up the lines, sort of like those fancy camouflaging animals whose goal isn't to blend in, so much as to weird out the predator's brain. Anyway, I like how the colors break up the lines here, as it brings a lot of the details into closer focus.

I like how the dragon is almost abstract, and if you don't look closely it resembles rocks. :la:

Watercolors always make me so nervous.  Partly because I don't use the medium enough and like markers if you make a mistake . . . you have to start over.

Naaaahhh if you screw up, you just keep plowing on! I made a lot of derps with this, shrugged, and kept painting. That's kind of the way with watercolor.

Really?  But won't it look weird if you tried painting over it?  Especially if you used the wrong color to start with?

If you have a unified pallet, not so much. And if you're letting your watercolor be watercolor, it won't look out of place because there's blending going on anyway. And there's really no such thing as 'the wrong color' in art. If you start with one and you change your mind about it, just shift your pallet and keep going and it'll be a learning experience.

That's true, but I know there's so much I need to learn.  I read the term 'unified pallet' which is something I SHOULD know and draw a blank.  I will be SOOO glad when my circumstances have calmed down enough where I can finally go back to school.  I've wanted to for YEARS.

I've thought about doing little art classes on the side but when they're not through a university it's hard to say that I'll be getting a good lesson, y'know?  Most of the 'art classes' given at craft stores are by people who need lessons themselves and are just trying to get extra money.  But everything is there for learning I suppose.

If you want to know about choosing pallets there are some really wonderful free resources to get you started. You could study and use this: gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/ as a guide for artwork for months and know more than a crafty art class could ever teach you. Everything there is super useful.  You don't need to go to school for art; you just need to hunt down the right resources and be self-directed.

That's true, and I probably need to do that more. I did, however, bookmark the website and I appreciate you putting it up!  That will help a lot!  Thanks!
