Right before DragonCon, I made a series of watercolor vignette's. I transitioned pretty heavily into digital, so I'm not sure if people would still like my traditional pieces.

=One-Vox did however, and encouraged me to post them on the web (and also to make more :D)

I'm not quite as excited about them as he is, but I decided to take his suggestion. If you like this one, I might post the other ones as well.

I *love* your watercolors and your traditional media works! I want very badly to get into traditional art techniques again (especially oil painting), but I can't have that mess in my apartment. So, I am envious that you are able to work with real, messy media!

(As soon as we find the right house, I plan to take over the garage and make it into a messy clay and paint studio. :D )

This reply is super overdue but here it goes anyways :O

I love working with watercolors because they aren't actually as messy as you'd think. It's the only natural media (asides of color pencils) that I actually travel with a lot because they are so portable. All you need is your paints, some paper and a palette, and since they are water soluble you can reuse them when they dry out. Depending on how you work with them, you don't even need to get too messy with water. (I'm not sure if you're familiar with Omar Rayaan, but the way he works with watercolors is almost like drawing, and he gets amazing results! [link])

Oil paints are another story - the main reason I don't work with them more often is because they require good ventilation, and in the past the cleanup time ate too much of my work time. They are super rewarding though once you get a hang of it though :)

I do hope you'll get your studio though - working with traditional media feels very satisfying :)
