I had the same problem...lack of patience.  At Buffalo State we had to pick an artist to study, so I picked Vincent Van Gogh.  I painted in his style, with lots of paint and movement and excitement.  I went through several brushes in each painting.  When I worked in watercolors, I painted thickly as in oils or acrylics.  I had to slow myself down to do justice to my watercolors.  I could teach the kids in my art classes how to watercolor, even though I "couldn't do it" myself.  I really like your barrel of apples.

Hi Felicia

My one and only watercolor is on my site.  It is a barrel of apples. I work mostly in acrylics.  I need to develop more patience for watercolour.

Hi Felicia.  Thanks for getting back to me.  Picking an artist as a mentor to follow is a great idea. I'll definitely try it. Keep in touch. Linda
