I haven't really done much painting since school, and then I generally used acrylics, so I'm not at all familiar with using watercolours. I mostly draw little cartoony/illustration type things, and I wanted to try using watercolours to colour them in, but I wasn't sure of the techniques to use. I bought some watercolours years ago and never used them, but then my son said he wanted to do some painting so I broke them out. I had meant to to work out what I was doing first, but instead I just sketched a little creature a bit like ones I've crocheted and gave it a try.



I would love any criticism, and hints and tips on how I could improve would be very much appreciated.

Awww, I think they are all so cute!

Watercolours make it look soft, I like that look! Works well if you want the creature to look furry and soft.

Sorry no tips, just compliments  Cheesy

Great first try at watercolors! Your piece is much better than mine lol! You've done well at capturing the depth! I am still at kind a one dimensional stage yet lol! Great job!

Thank you! I find it hard to work out how to get the effects and colours that I want, I still want to do it the way I would with acrylics.
