All We Need Is U
Hi everyone

We have decided to have a poll so you can vote for your :+fav: submissions selected for the poll at the end of each month.

It's our aim to showcase everyone's work - so we will have limits on how many times any one artist will be selected for the poll.  Once submissions are selected, the poll will be published, and YOU our membership will pick the winners for that month.

The poll will be created by one moderator (each month a different moderator) and the winning images will appear in a Monthly Feature Journal as well as reside in our Featured folder until the next month's winners displace them.

Soooooooooooo - if you haven't submitted any work so far this month go ahead and get some in midnight April 30th to be eligible for our very first Feature Journal

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring and lots of time for your art.

I've used watercolour pencils for quite some time now. I haven't bothered looking up a tutorial or examples of how water colours should be used. I know this will sound like a stupid question but...
How do I use watercolours? Is there any particular way I should use my watercolour pencils? I don't use watercolouring paints that much... mostly pencil. here is a example of one of my works

From the example you gave me, you use colored pencils VERY VERY well :nod:

Our group watercolorists displays watercolor paintings and we look for images that are translucent rather than opaque :nod:

The example you sent would not be eligible for display in our group because you classify it (and we agree with that classification)  as a drawing and although it is a wonderful piece, does  not have the painterly translucent qualities of a fluid watercolor painting :tears:

Hopefully the above helps better understand how we look at submissions
