What to start with?

3 floral watercolor painting tutorials by Olga Peregood
I often recommend my floral painting tutorials for beginners when they ask me which tutorial to choose to start with.

I started from flowers when I was beginner in watercolor. I started from flowers when I begin to make tutorials.

Because flowers is so beautiful and easy to paint in watercolor. It`s so easy to get upset about your result when you just start to approach watercolor.  So I make my tutorials as easy as possible to make a room for fun and pleasure while painting.

Watercolor is so beautiful medium just in process when colors are wet. Watercolor is so interesting medium. When colors begin to dry you see these amazing watermarks and new color combinations are forming in front of you.

There are so much to learn in watercolor. I paint almost every day and each session brings me new ideas where to implement new discoveries.

So my answer on common question is flowers.
In every tutorial I talk about materials I use as well.

The Fastest Animal

I found that less is more. It is better to add a tiny brushstroke for one set and save the freshness of first wash than overworking follow your rush.

Seems like my turtle is the fastest animal! With watercolor turtle appears very quickly just with 2 layers. My first watercolor animal painting that was sold was a turtle. It was sold very quickly the next day it was painted.

As soon as my first painting of turtle leaving my studio I have to paint another one. My lucky talisman.

First painting ❖ ❖ ❖ S O L D ❖ ❖ ❖

Original watercolor by Olga Peregood. SOLD

I just started this year making tutorials.

I recently received comments, questions about my painting art and feedback on tutorials and YT videos.

And this is my first painting SOLD.

Before I started I give myself a time not to ask many. When you really deep in that and not expect results just work and believe. When it sells some day you know it so wonderful feeling. And it is unexpected and such a celebration!

Anybody could start to become an artist at any age of life. When it happens and you sell your first painting. I can't describe this feeling I am overwhelmed right now. As artists the day we sold our first paining will never be forgotten.

Work, patience, practice, believe you can − dreams come true!

It's time say goodbye to my painting. I have so much pleasure by painting it. I hope it brings lovely emotions into its new home.

P.S. Next day another painting was sold as well!
