Let it Snow


This is my first post. I haven't really worked on watercolor for a long time. I'm glad to be included in WaWe because I think it will rekindle my enthusiasm for watercolor. It is my favorite medium but it is so frustrating...this can be seen in my illo. Started out okay with pure watercolor in the landscape portion but blew it with the subject...hence, acrylic to cover up the mistakes. Hopefully, practice will teach me how to avoid that. If they were all perfect, I'd be driving a nicer truck.

Thanks for the invite, Linda. Happy to be here.
