I really enjoyed watching Kristy create this very unique art combining natural elements, watercolor paints & paper. While I did not create each piece, it inspired me to create my own using what I had on hand by watching her techniques. (I did invest in new paint & watercolor paper.) It is so very relaxing if you don’t expect a finished piece to be as professional looking as the artist’s work, especially when one is new to painting.
