Watercolor Strawberries | Kuretake Gansai Tambi

The Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge this week is "Let's doodle" so I decided to try and watercolor doodle a couple of strawberries. Now I am no professional watercolor artist... just a beginner and just having fun.

Check out the video here. 
Or head to my channel there -------->

I find that some of the colors in this watercolor set can be shiny after they dry. You can see it in the pictures at the end of the video mostly. Also I just have a heavy hand and tend to coat on the paint more then I should I think. But it's all a learning process.
