I did not know that watercolour can be so fun. I got myself the Professional Water Color Chelsea Box from ArtFriend recently and was eager to give it a try.
The painting progress photos below.
Call me "kiasu", I bought a 400gsm watercolour painting pad.
Super thick per piece. Almost like a cardboard. I then found out that 300gsm works well too.
The water colours are easy to use. Colours are vibrant and "fresh".
Finished piece (below). :)
The photo below is version 2, where I tried to downplay the background.
This is done using photoshop.
