Water is hard to control. Water is fluid, it flows and moves in all different directions. Our paints will respond differently when there’s too much water, just enough water, and not enough water. There are so many factors here that can change the outcome of our painting.
But this is also what makes watercolors so unique. You can get hard edges like you’d expect to be able to do, but with watercolors you can also create really soft blends and bleeds from one color to the next. Pretty amazing.
