While at our PLAy retreat, I saw http://www.carlasonheim.com/ using a set of pelikan watercolors and she made it look so fun. So since I have only ever used tube watercolors (and only for backgrounds), I decided to pick myself up a set (with my 40% coupon at aaron brothers). Today I decided to play around with them. Clearly, I need more practice with both the painting (and the drawing!!)...but I was hoping if I scanned it in, it might look better (it doesn't). But I have to say it was tons of fun...I like having a palette ready to go.
