thursday thoughts - try one more time

For Christmas I gifted myself a set of these watercolors.
I'll admit I bought them because of the colors,
not really because I wanted to use them ;)
They were calling my name though. So on Saturday I decided to sit down and try.
The last couple of times I tried watercolors I hated them. I usually paint with acrylics, and I am impatient.
But this time something different happened. I fell in love.
I still don't know what I'm doing, but I know from past experiences with my art, practice makes perfect you better. 
I was very happy with the end result.
I used a combination of watercolor and acrylic paint.
Below you can see prints of the original. They are going to be used in a special valentine project with this shop to help with this. And eventually I'll be offering them in the shop.
