    There is one painting in the list- at number 13, I believe it is made by Keino White, the credits do not say so, I do follow his work closely, could you please check and give him his due credit , if you have lifted his art randomly from the net.

    Those paintings are really nice. Contrary to the oil paintings, the watercolors are thin and that property gives it a unique characteristic more usable for emotional expressions. I am lover of Water color paintings and have tried to paint some (mostly landscapes). I always seek such collections to get inspired and keep pushing my skills ahead. Here is where i found a big collection of Watercolor paintings, if you also want to see many more paintings like this:

    Awesome collection! It’s hard to choose a favorite, but i really liked the concept of mathiole’s second painting with piano and butterflies…
