7 Favorite Etsy Watercolor Artists

For as long as I can remember, I've admired watercolor paintings. I think they're lovely to look at no matter the time of year, but perhaps the pastel colors and washed effect pair especially well with spring and summer. I've been scouting around for prints to freshen up our porch and had the thought to share my finds with you.
