Yep, that is right.... Water Color :lol: :lol: This was my first and last water color. I have no idea how to use water color, and I know I did it all wrong, but my daughter loved it:) and it was for her birthday a while back. Just wanted to share:wave:http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Mar-2012/198534-tones_butterfly_sized.jpg

This is fantastic. I have never used water color either, but you have hit a home run on your first water color painting in my opinion. I really like the composition! Maybe you should give watercolor a second try? Hope so.

This is lovely, especially considering it's your first attempt with watercolours. The colours are very rich and vibrant. It almost looks like an oil painting.
