Day 9/21 My first attemp-water color

I did most of my coloring in Photoshop, but I love to learn to paint with water color, I admire how people can paint especially water color, I always want to learn yet never really act on it.Everything always have it first time, now I want to start practice painting with water color and by practicing more, I hope I will gain experiences and improve the coloring skills. This exercise really push me to do what I have put off for long time..I don't think I colored this one good, (sketched and color last night) I have no clue how to control the paints, how much to mix and not knowing whether I use the right techniques? I simply bought some water color and water color paper and start blur. However, now I have a tutoring water color book, I will practice with it. (I will color this is Photoshop too, to compare with this) Feel me to comment and love to hear what I should do as a beginner.
通常我都是用Photoshop塗顏色,很少用水彩顏色上色,主要我不懂!但是很喜歡水彩畫,很羡慕懂的用水彩顏色劃畫,我之前自學的作品也不敢登上因為塗的很差!! :( 所以停了,不過参加了blog world這个21天的計劃,我要再試一試。有待進步. 多多指教!For my boy, I bought "Stone painting" books in second hand store a while ago (love shop in second hand store to search for goodies), we were doing this Stones painting on the weekend, here is one of the stone's he painted (with some help). 仔仔是獨生兒,在家時除了他爸爸我二姐三姐表姐陪他玩,其余的時候吵很悶,看电視和玩電惱game的時间很strict ,那我会找一些craft給他做,今次是看到表姐在家的stone painting craft, 我又在二手店買到這本塗石頭手藝書,再到外面找石頭回來洗乾清,給仔仔慢慢塗..他的控制手工還沒steady,到最後我捉他手塗一些地方,很快就完成啦!Added some background in the pictures to spice it up! ...

Nice illo.. and great effort. And i think for first attempt.. that is great.. :)

i am not much of a water colour person too.. just love pen-ink and colour pencil. but i do agree with you that we should try on different medium. i am still trying to learn how to control water colours. Get myself a book, and terpaksa belajar perlahan-lahan dari situ laa. tee hee

my second attempt is to do a potrait. I find it hard too. huhu. but i guess we can accompany each other on learning watercolour.. betul kan?

heppi blogging yer.. =)

I am very impressed with the watercolor. Very nice, hard to belive it is your first attempt. Your colors look good and clear.

I love your work, it is so colorful and fun. And with watercolors, I think that the more you "play and experiment" the easier it becomes... you discover new techniques and tricks that work for you.
Thanks for sharing.
