Fiddle + Watercolor = MUD

I usually paint in twos. I am a little impatient when I paint and that tends to work against watercolor painting. Paint needs time to dry. And we've all heard: 'it's as exciting as as watching paint dry'

When I paint in twos- while one is drying, I go to the other painting and work on it. This is usually enough time for the other one to dry. Then I go back to the other. It works for me. Other wise. I start to fiddle. Fiddle + Watercolor = MUD. And mud is bad.

Here is the other small painting I did yesterday. Again, not a masterpiece but I sure enjoyed painting!

I've heard/seen that advice -- work on two things at once. It works for me. Your watercolors are great. You are getting your mojo back.... Keep it up.
