I have always wanted to learn how to paint with watercolors. Once I retired I played around a bit finding things on YouTube or other online instruction. Then I somehow stumbled across Anna Mason and her beautiful watercolor botanicals. I tried one of her tutorials and was hooked. I've been enrolled in the Anna Mason online art school for about 8 months now and painting has become my passion. I'm so grateful for her talent and generosity, she has helped me pursue something that I have always wanted to do. Her hard work, dedication and willingness to share her art is truly a gift. I'm using the skills that I am learning from her and applying them to other compositions, hoping to eventually create a style that's all mine. I am also enjoying the amazing talent displayed here, it's truly inspiring!
