Watercolor is said to be an addictive type of painting.  The color, texture and material selected in the beginning can lead down a very unpredictable path.  The constant blending, building, editing, tearing down and rebuilding again delivers a sense of achievement to these masters, however, by taming the uncontrollable nature of the medium.      David […]
