My First Watercolor Sketchbook

I started painting with watercolors over a year ago.  At first it was just to create cards.  I wanted more variety than I could get with stamps.  Frankly, I didn't want to keep investing in stamps which took up money AND space.  I would practice a particular design until I could paint it decently, make cards and move on.  Eventually though I enjoyed painting more and more things.

Many people paint in a sketchbook but I wasn't sure it was for me. I was concerned that 1, I would mess it up.  I would paint something I hated and then see it every time I flipped through my sketchbook.  And 2, what if the opposite happened and I painted something I loved. The 2nd thing was happening with painting on loose watercolor paper and those things that were pretty good were getting turned into cards.  Then they were gone and I had no reference.  So eventually I bought an Etchr Labs Watercolor sketchbook and was hooked.

It took me less than 3 months to fill it. Here are all the pages in this video:

Let me know what your favorite is.  Thanks for watching!
