I think uneven swirls look creative so I wouldn't worry to much about getting them even.

The Owl Prince earned me an Honorable Mention ribbon 1 month after I got fired upon my return to work after breast cancer reconstruction surgery. This was my very first art show! Really gave me one heck of a morale boost!

Wren44,

I use watercolor and it is a tremendous therapy. Unfortunately mentally I find it so hard to focus on painting. I thought maybe posting this would help me get motivated to pick up a brush again.

It has been 6 months since I painted.

From what I hear, most artists are having trouble with motivation right now. Probably has something to do with consistent unease about everything.
