Watercolor Study, painting 1! - Humble Beginnings! by ArtBYbeverly Watercolor Study, painting 1! - Humble Beginnings! by ArtBYbeverly
This was back when I was first trying out watercolors, my husband liked this series of village type paintings I did...so I thought I would take photos of them and post them here. Please be kind, as this series of watercolor paintings, were my very first attempts at the ever so difficult medium!

I'm so glad I do pastels now, YAY!! lol

Thank you so much my dear friend! :hug:  

Say my friend, I'm not sure if you get my journals, but I have to take a leave of absence from DeviantArt for a while, due to being so busy with my art and other things.  I just wanted you to know that you are such a good friend and lovely person and It's been a real pleasure getting to know you :)  Take care of yourself, and be well okay! :tighthug: :heart: Hopefully you'll still be around DA when I return! :please: :pray:

Thank you so much, water-colour is the worst medium for controlling, but I had to give it a go anyway lol!  You're lovely comment means a lot Linda, thanks!!

I'm not an artist Bev so I don't know, but have seen you state that in another post. It's amazing because the difficulties you have really do not show in your final works. (that's how you know you're good, in my humble opinion... I would suggest you keep at it too, especially if you enjoy it, even just a bit.  ) :hug:

Thank you so much Linda, for your wonderful comment, and lovely advice!  Maybe one day, I may try water-colour again, but I am so in love with coloured pencils, and pastels lol, that it may be quite a while before I try them again :D...But, thank you once again!! :cuddle:

I'm not exactly sure anymore, because it was quite some time ago that I painted this :) Sorry! I believe either in England or Scotland.

Aww Vin, thank you so much...yes I know, its a tiny bit intimidating posting work sometimes, not knowing what kind of reaction you'll get lol, but I did it for those artists that have often said to me, "I wish I could do that"...but remind them, that we all started at the same point, just a matter of practise and patience haha :)
