These are two of my first experiments using watercolour paints. They were done following AhmadArt‘s tutorial on YouTube. I chose to do a simple beach scene to get used to blending colours and judging the amount of water to use. I did the green one first, and I found that my brush strokes were already improving in the second painting. I plan to paint these scenes again at the end of the semester as a way of measuring my progress.
