I really love all your practices and if you call them practices then I don’t know what you’ll call a finished artwork. I guess, I’m intimidated to even know the answer.
Can I ask you on questions? Do you not dilute the watercolors because when I try working with watercolors they generally tend to overflow and I’ve never been able to get the clear edges all your artworks, sorry practices, seem to have?

Hi, sketchesbynitesh thank you for your comment. I’d like to say that although I use watercolour but the papers I use is Chinese ricepapers/xuen papers. It is different than ordinary watercolour papers. It usually absorb most of the colour with one stroke. In early years, I usually will test the liquidity of the colour on separate papers. If it is too much water it will spread all over the ricepapers. As Years go by, you will know. I tend not to use too much water now because in Chinese painting, we can’t make correction once the colour touches papers. So by try and error you will learn. Good luck and good day/night.
