Watercolors I

I have mentioned before that when I make cards I usually make 13. It seems rather odd and I am not sure why exactly that number. Well, recently I found out that I do the same with watercolors ( the small ones I mean).I can do up to 13, no more, no less in one sitting.
Peculiar thing, inspiration, it’s here, then it’s not…
Well, here are some of my latest watercolors. The size of all is 8/10 with the frame. The actual painting probably is 6/8 ( I haven’t measured it). Please, have in mind that I’ve been painting with watercolor only 2 months and I have a lot to learn.
1. Watercolor ” Window” in blue and gray with orange vase. I should probably mention that I don’t draw sketches with pencil before I apply the watercolor. This is difficult for me to master yet, but I am trying. I try mostly because I don’t like how the pencil shows under the watercolor, but also because I change ideas in the process of painting.

2. Watercolor ” Trees” my first attempt at painting water that is not blue.

4. Watercolor ” Briar in a vase”– this one has a smaller version that I couldn’t fine a frame for, but maybe I’ll take a picture only of the watercolor itself.

I’ll post 5 more tomorrow.
Let me know what you think, I am still in a process of learning and every opinion is very welcome. I can’t decide if I should use any of these for the art show too.
