Watercolour has a mind of its own. I just realized that it is a beautiful thing and that I need to appreciate it more.
I was painting a friend’s Christmas card, using an old trick of drawing the tree in crayon and using water colours over it. Every stroke of the cobalt blue that I used was a different shade than the last. I never mixed water in between and the tree looked like it was in the middle of a blue snowstorm.
I totally fell in love.
