One Thousand Watercolors
A college instructor once told us that do not even think about framing a watercolor until you have finished at least one thousand paintings. The more I pursue the medium the better I understand what he was saying. Watercolor painting can be very simple so this statement is not true for everyone, but once you start working from nature the smallest of variables will have an effect on the final picture. I am on the path of one thousand now. I plan on hitting ten thousand one day. I see each painting like a song on an instrument. In music the song goes away, with watercolor, the song dries on a piece of paper.
