We have all experienced those moments when we realize that the paint is not doing what we wanted it to do.

Then we panic. We grab for the tissue and blot like crazy or keep adding water and paint only to discover that we have made it worse.

Instead of panicking, realize that the spontaneity of the water and the paint is what makes watercolor painting so exciting.

Take a deep breath.  Watch the paint do its magic or think to yourself,

“Okay, this wasn’t what I expected and it isn’t anything like I imagined, but how can I make it still look great?”

Perhaps it is just a matter of changing your perspective or your vision.

But please Don’t Panic!
