When you use watercolor it is less messy than Acrylic or Oil paint. The simplicity makes it great for faster painting time. The effect is also different as the paint and water gives a wet look. It also takes more layers to achieve darker hues or less water.
It is great to use water color when you have an idea you want to quickly get on paper. The flow of the paint is very smooth and allows you to create endless images.
This image too me about 10 minutes. I used a brown color first then worked from light to dark. I also worked on the background after the foreground, I used a medium brush and I also used black, red, green, and blue.
