What is your favorite medium to work with?

Give me a W! Give me an A! Give me a T! Give me an ...

... oh, never mind this is too long,

 it's watercolor!  

I love this medium. Maybe is due to the fact that it's so beautiful and translucent, or it could be because the washes are very subtle yet rich at the same time, or perhaps is because it transitions so amazingly well from one color to the other. I honestly don't know... it could be all those reasons together but I find watercolor truly magical.

I fell in love with it the first time I loaded the brush and laid the washes on paper. It just "feels" right to me. I like other mediums too, but my true love is watercolor. What can I say? I'm a romantic gal ;o)

W/C seems so difficult to me so I'm always impressed when I see illustrators that handle it so well...and that's you!
