Watercolor with Creativebug

This year I am starting up my creative journey
by trying out Creativebug.
I have tried Skillshare 
(which I like, but not love)
and Big Picture Classes 
(which is okay, but after a while a little boring).
So far I LOVE Creativebug.

I started with Yao Cheng's watercolor classes.
She is very talented,
and I love just watching her paint.

Below are a few practice swatches inspired by her.

I think I have written about this before,
but I am more and more convinced 
that with watercoloring, quality matters.
The quality of the brush, 
the quality of paper, and
the quality of the water colors itself. 
It doesn't necessarily mean expensive. 
Target art has some great brushes,
but sadly kids watercolor doesn't work for me.

Anyhow, I am practicing as much as I can :)

Hope everyone is finding their creative groove! 
Happy 2016!
