Tuesday's Tips and Techniques for Watercolor Painting

Paint Something New

This week, try something a little outside your comfort zone. If you normally stick to a few different subject matters, think outside the box and attempt something new, something different, something you've never tried before. There has to be something you've never tried to paint in watercolor, try it now.

Have you ever done a landscape? A floral? A still life? Crystal? A stuffed animal? A totally abstract painting? A completely realistic painting? Fruit? A portrait? A self portrait? A painting of a house? A sunset?

Here's my recent and first attempt at painting a teddy bear. I think he turned out kinda cute.

I dare you to try and paint a totally new to you subject matter.

What are you going to paint this week, that you have never tried before?
