Watercolor practice

Watercolor paper, watercolor half pans, watercolor brushes, water, fountain pen. All the necessary gear I need to make a little painting. Eventually I will be doing this while out and about so now during the cold of winter I get to practice. Knowing that I know close to nothing about what I'm doing and letting go of the result was helpful. It feels weird knowing that the colors I produced were completely by accident. Of course I was using known colors and I have some idea of mixing, but really I'm such a n00b. So I find it amazing that I created this picture. It was a pleasant surprise to see the little painting dry because the colors are so different from when they are wet. I think I just fell in love with watercolor.
