My name is Cristina. I’ve been a member for a short while but I haven’t really been active here until now. I have been more active on Instagram though, since I decided to participate in the World Watercolor Month I have posted my “art” almost every day, following Charlie’s prompt lists.
I used to draw as a kid and I used to get watercolor pencils and wc paints for my birthdays, but for some reason I lost interest, don’t know why. Until two years ago I decided to try again.
When I go to museums I always preferred the watercolor paintings to the oil or acrylic ones, they are so brilliant and vibrant and shiny. Also they seem to me the easiest to use when it comes to preparing a painting session. All you need is the paint, paper and a brush and the brush is so easy to clean. I guess I’m a bit lazy 😉
So I tried Watercolours and spent hours and hours reading (Handprint) watching YouTube tutorials (The mind of watercolor) and painting of course, and I just really love painting with watercolours. I get frustrated and less motivated at times but since I joined Doodlewash I find it easier to stay motivated and just paint, even when I’m tired or not in the mood.
So I am happy to be here! 😀 See you around!
