Whilst wandering through my sketchbook the other day, I stumbled upon this little piece from last year during my first explorations with watercolor. It's not a great piece by any means, but it's nice to see how far I've come (especially when it's easy to get discouraged by the continued learning process).
In defense of my older self, this was also done on drawing paper, and thus the colors don't blend and quickly grow muddy.
How have you grown this past year? Any new talents budding? Has the process been frustrating or are you wrapped up in the rewards of a new experience?
