Falling in love all over again.

I don't know why, but recently I seem to have fallen in love with my watercolours all over again. It's many years since I...abandoned them, I guess you could say. But now... they're back!

I know why they appeal to me, because they are quick to work with (and they can take a long time, too, it depends on what you want to do). This is very different from using oils as I've been doing mostly for the past 5-7 years.

It feels like I'm back where I started. I'm picking up my pencils and watercolours again, but with much more determination to...make it work. Not just as a hobby. It's like it's something I have to do.

Watercolours are so diverse, they can be really, really delicate and transparent, but they can also be very colourful and vibrant. I like the versatility, cause my creative mood changes all the time. Sometimes I want contemplation, sometimes I want to almost punch people in the face with colour!

So, now I'm gonna make myself a mini-gallery of watercolours, there are already a few to look at.
