Seems I'm constantly coming back to watercolor. When I was looking for my first art class about six years ago, I first signed up for watercolor. As luck would have it the class was cancelled and I never got back to the medium. Except for a few workshops here and there I've not done much watercolor painting. I started pastels instead and fell in love with them. Lot of my instructors and other artist friends are pairing up oils and pastels with their painting. I think I'll stick with watercolor and pastel for now. Different experiences completely but they both can give you softer more impressionistic paintings.
