Paintings contribute to the beauty of homes, offices, and business establishments. Whether you’re an adult, teenager, or child, learning how to paint can be fun and easy, especially if you are determined to develop this skill.

If you’re unsure which medium to start with, you might want to try watercolor paintings.

Watercolors are a beautiful way to convey your feelings through painting, and offer many advantages over other types of media.

Here are some of the best reasons to try watercolor painting:

It is easy – When compared to other types of painting, watercolor painting can be much easier and you may accomplish better results in a shorter time.

It is fast – There are certain techniques that you should learn in watercolor painting, such as quick washes and spontaneous strokes. This is the beauty of watercolor painting, in that you may finish your piece in less than an hour and get satisfying results.

It does not smudge – Compared to charcoal and pastel, watercolor painting doesn’t smudge.

It dries quickly – Your art piece can dry in only several minutes. If you use oil paints for example, it could take days or even weeks before the piece dries completely.

‘Accidents’ can contribute to your creativity – You don’t have to worry about accidents during watercolor painting, because they can magically develop into something beautiful. You can even pour the watercolor on the paper as you start your painting and see what designs it can create.

Some experts say that using watercolors can be hard because beginner artists can’t easily control it. Our recommendation: let the watercolor’s magic work. Don’t interfere at first, see the designs it can create, and start painting
from there.

If you frequently practice, you will be able to control your strokes in time and create more artistic and unique watercolor paintings. Never stop learning, because by doing so, you can develop more interesting and artistic ideas that you can use in your paintings.
