Watercolour is a very fun medium to work with. Many find it intimidating at first, but once you get hold of the basics, you are on your way to creating magic. Practice is key for watercolours; the more you do, the more confidence you gain with the medium. You will waste a lot of paper once you start exploring, you will do a lot of messy, weird stuff; but don't loose heart. Keep painting more, explore different materials and painting styles, and take inspiration from your favourite artists. Nobody became a genius in watercolours overnight, did they? Everyone started somewhere. So get your painting stuff out and get watercoloring.
