Watercolour, my new challenge


The drawing is my thing again. From January I signed almost daily. First with the objectoons and then nice for myself and especially with pastel. I love the material and enjoy being busy. Nevertheless, pastel also has drawbacks. I had to sit down extensively and have the table completely full. In addition, I often find it difficult to get started and I would like to work looser and I hope to work outside this summer and because we hope to get to know other areas during a (Dutch) trip is something that is easy to take with you Convenient.

Water paint/watercolor wax is my head always something, that would be nothing for me, what I could not etc. However, the last few weeks I came across it again and again and my attention was drawn. Last weekend, all of a sudden, everything came together. I saw a few invitations for fun webinars passing by and saw on Aliexpress a nice offer for an everything in 1 watercolor box. A nice price and even with a 7-day delivery. So it happened that I signed up for the two Webinars and ordered the box.

And yes, today DHL was already at my door with my package, neatly within a week! Neatly packed in a nice box and the set itself is nicely complete. So nice that everything is nicely together. Convenient to take outside or on the go.

Of course I had to give it a try, but oh how different this material works. A layer stays wet, which is nice when you want to mix, but when you put a black eye, it also flows away. And now to prevent me from putting the box in the closet, as with previous materials, or hiding my attempts quickly, I take on the challenge with myself and this beautiful box of watercolor.


Starting tomorrow, I will create a small watercolor project for 10 days, with the theme of nature around me.


I wonder what I'm going to think of it.. I only have a small block of paper in my house, so many try, throw away etc. is not in it.
