Monday Night and Beginning Watercolor 3/4/15 Letting Go

I'm convinced that it's easier to ruin a watercolor by over-controlling it than by letting go of too much control. This is opinion, of course, not fact, but I'll go further and say it's also a bigger shame.

The more we hold onto, the more ways there are for what we do to be wrong. Let's see what happens to the paint when we intentionally let go of accuracy more and more.

Make a statement with your brush, then let it be. No need to correct. We're taking a break from wrong.
