art medium: watercolor

One recurring question we're always asked in regards to artwork is, "Where did you find that!?". The answer is as follows: Flea markets! Our absolute favorite thing to find at an antique fair is artist portfolios. A sketchbook full of figure studies, messy watercolors, pencil line drawings, I mean I'll take anything, as long as I didn't do it myself. (Side note: I lit'rally cannot appreciate artwork I've created myself. Anyone else have this problem?) Found portfolio pieces are quite often imperfect with a dot here or a wrinkle in the paper there but it adds to the character and reminds me I didn't pay arms and/or legs for it. And once in a frame, it looks totally unique. ANYWAYS, for those not into dumpster diving portfolios or not necessarily confident in your art choosing abilities, we compiled some of our favorite non-flea but generally affordable art pieces, specifically within the watercolor family. Because who doesn't love a good, colorful, abstract watercolor.

Our eyes are always peeled for art and especially art sites that are reasonably affordable and unique. We've been specifying quite a bit lately and decided to share our finds along the way. Now, Rehabitat loves a good gallery wall- they are great for so many reasons that I don't feel like explaining- but sometimes we see too much of them and you know, it's all Pinterest's fault. I still love you gallery wall- I just need to see what else is out there. So what is the exact opposite of a wall full of watercolors, figure studies, botanical prints, oil paintings and collages??? ONE LARGE PICTURE. It's so easy. Here, we picked 10 for you.
