Bluebonnets

I'm finally learning how to make prints of my watercolors! I got myself a nice Epson printer and some fancy Epson presentation paper, and jumped into the quicksand. I thrashed around in the manual for a few weeks, enlisted the kind advice of the members of this wonderful group (Watercolors Wet N Wild), scoured the internet for assistance, tried to match up Photoshop techniques with my Epson, and learned about all kinds of things I didn't want to know about (like aspect ratios)...and finally had my very first print. And it only took me a few weeks and about five hundred dollars. For one little bluebonnet print. But I'm happy. I'm on my way. Got a long way to go and alot more to learn, but I'm on my way. For those of you who would like to make prints of your watercolors, I have this advice: save yourself.

Trial and error, trial and error but in time you'll love it. I've been doing it for years and I'm on my third Epson and love it.
