Watercolour is, in my opinion, one of the most delicate forms of artistic painting.  Now I know there are a lot of very delicate, time-intensive mediums out there, but with watercolour - there is such a freedom about it.  You are at the will of the pigments suspended in water, layer upon layer of free-formed color.  Yes you apply the color, the stroke, the amount of water - but ask someone who's tried to achieve a piece of work such as this and they will tell you - it's not that simple.
Silver Ridge Studio's Etsy shop has me in awe of the ethereal water paintings done by Cate Parr, an England native, now living in Los Angeles making amazing portraits for all to see.  I spotted one of her portraits in Lucky's February issue and fell into a state of inspiration.
You can view her work on her Etsy shop, here.  Be ready to fall in love with some amazingly feminine portraits.
