Learning to paint with watercolors

I love water! I love the clarity, fluidity, and power that water has to move things and change things. When I paint, it is so intriguing because I never really know what to expect. Here are some of my first attempts with a basic Crayola set. I also used some watercolor pencils. I have to say that when using the crayola paints, I didn’t like the way the color would spread out so far from where my paintbrush touched the paper. After I painted these pictures, my son gave me some higher quality brushes, and that made a big difference. So really, the problem was with the brush and not the paint. I have so much to learn! I want to mention that the picture that says “I (heart) my cat” is one I copied off my cup of tea.
