my story

Eileen McKenna

I started painting in watercolor about fifteen years ago when I enrolled in a class. A few years later – during the early days of my blog "My Creative Resolution" – I gave myself the freedom to explore any and all mediums. I grew bored of using pencil in my sketchbook and pulled out my watercolor paints. I never put them away again! Watercolor has been a focus of mine ever since.

As I practiced I learned more and more about working in this magical medium. How to both control it and let it "do it's thing." The purpose of this guide is to get you started, so you can discover a love of watercolor just as I did. Follow this guide, give it time and practice, and you’ll be an experienced watercolor artist in no time!
