In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few.

Since I started experimenting with watercolors the past few weeks, I've been looking for examples of technique and style online. I have found many pieces which I consider to be 'traditional' watercolor. Free flowing paint without any true visible lines. Everything flows into everything else creating the delineations between objects and space. I have also found many 'journal' sketches and illustrations that have been colored with watercolor. For me these are fascinating. I can't explain why, they just are. It is probably because the format is new to me. As I posted last week, for me the idea of an illustrated journal is stepping out of my box. My box being my happy zone where I do simply because it is so natural that I don't think to do something any other way. Or, because it has been pounded into me so deep that through my programming [brainwashing] I cannot see doing something differently. It is this latter that I am trying to break free from.
