About a month ago I wrote here on Bored Panda that I had started my personal challenge for painting 12 beautiful landscapes for my watercolor picture calendar. And finally, the landscape paintings are ready! And yes, it wasn't so easy as it seems. But sometimes we have to get out of the comfort zone to improve our skills!

I made one more conclusion based on this watercolor paintings' challenge: if you really like something and want to bring your creative ideas to life, you will do it. You will find the time, strength, energy, and opportunities, even if it seems impossible!

Best wishes for the upcoming New Year!

Wow, so you fulfilled the "CHALLENGE" to complete the 12 watercolors in roughly 1 to 2 MONTHS! Pretty AMAZING, Congratulations, again!

BEAUTIFUL! Gorgeous winter scenes, CONGRATULATIONS! I presume that getting the 12 paintings DONE was the challenge... that is, a challenge for an artist ALREADY FAMILIAR with watercolor, right?... and not for someone who hasn't used watercolor medium before.

Thanks a lot, Gabi! As you rightly noticed, it was a challenge even for me, and I'm familiar with watercolor. Considering that I work on an regular basis 5 days a week... Yes, it was a real challenge!))

Your use of white space is perfect and suits the winter landscape so well. I also really love your ability to show the soft warm glow of streetlights. This is definitely my favorite!

This one really has a different look and feel to it compared to your others. The harder edges and sharp contrasts work so well with this street scene. I love it!
