Watercolor Fun

Happy Halloween! I have been busy teaching myself watercolor. This is mostly done through trial and error with complementing parts of studying work. A lot of experimenting is needed. I quickly realized that the type of paper you use has as much to do with the ease and frustration factor as anything. That's about as far as I've gotten. I'm still using a little crayola set and a little prang set of tin watercolors, but of course using the nicest brushes that I can afford to buy. I'm also doing more experimenting with water soluble media, pens, ink etc. Soon I plan on graduating to some better quality watercolors. I present these few results of my efforts here for your enjoyment.
