First page in my own book

Well, yikes. It turns out I don't really know anything about using watercolors (that's my A4 watercolor mole), but I like the distorted close-ups well enough. I guess that is part of the beauty of participating in this exchange: the push to try new media. At least I will (theoretically) get most of the really messy initial stumbling out of the way in my own book!

I love it! this color combo is awesome and also, you just solved a color problem I've been struggling with since morning!

Purple was the answer!

You two are too kind! Of course I panicked, and added more glop to it. Live and learn-- I can tell this is going to be really good for me. (Aya, that's awesome! I do like the colors!)

These are wonderful. The bottom left one reminds me of El Perdenal, the famous mesa that Georgia O'Keeffe loved, outside of Abiquiu, NM.

Gorgeouso. Those hot pinks & cool blues make me green with envy! I have Aya's book now & it's a WC book. Maybe I'll try this color scheme :-)

You know a hell of a lot more than me about watercolors, these colors are lush!
