If you haven't listened to The Gits...you should. Often.
Last December I spent a couple of weeks working at the kitchen table with tubes of watercolors and painted away. I had never used watercolors out of a tube before and I treated the paint like it was acrylics more than how I imagine traditional watercolors being used.
Watercolors on a piece of 12 X 9 inch drawing paper. I signed this in the bottom right hand corner after the picture was taken, just before it was sealed.
