Watercolor Play

Hello!
I have painted illustrations in the past mainly in goauche. I feel like they can be too rigid and uptight so I wanted to try watercolors. It took me forever to attempt it because honestly, I was afraid of watercolors...lol. I'm so glad I did though! I'm having fun with this class and with experimenting. These are my first 2 watercolor attempts. I like them, but they still aren't quite right for me. I am trying to loosen up and find my true style. I was afraid if I waited until then to post something, I would never do it! 

Sorry for the terrible photo quality... I'm working on it!

I'm working on lots more so I will upload more as I go. Thanks for looking :)   Linda

So in the spirit of being "loose"... I tried to do a quick illustration, painting FIRST and putting in pencil lines later. It forced me to wing it. I have to say, I don't hate it... It's far from perfect but it has personality I guess. Still experimenting :)
