Experimenting with Watercolors

First off: Thank you so much for your support
I took everyone's advice and just created.
I surrounded myself with my favorite supplies
(that can be done in front of the tv...not ready to paint yet)
I was inspired by Daisy Yellow 
GO!
Check out her blog!
Its awesome!
(Seriously)
and her Cityscapes, so I decided to just doodle.
I created some rectangles and tried to free my mind.
I am making a concerted effort to try and doodle more,
because I suck at it! 
 It is getting easier to just draw whatever comes to mind
I didn't think it would
I scoffed that I could let myself just go.
Well, I was wrong :)
It does get easier the more you do it
Next, I experimented with my watercolors
I've had them for awhile, but always went to the acrylic paint.
Truth be told, watercolors intimidate me
Last night I decided (with everyone's kind words in my mind)
to just put the paint to the paper.
I have much to learn, but it was FUN
Yay :)
