Hi everyone, I am doing a project for statistics class and I decided to incorporate my hobby of watercoloring into it! The idea is to see if there is a trend in how long you have been watercoloring and how long it takes for you to complete a piece of work.

(i hope the mods allow url's) here is the link:

At the end you can see everyone else's responses as well. Thanks for participating.

I filled out the survey, but don't expect my answers to be of any value to you.

The fastest I've done a painting was four days working on it a few hours a day. But some have been in progress for years, waiting for me to get back to them. Sometimes life gets in the way of painting.

That is not good question, as it depends on your skills, size of work, mood, motif... Usually it takes me about four or five hours.

A 9x12 piece of Watercolor painting can take me a whole day. Given that I'm not doing any other thing that day.
