Painting with Watercolors

Watercolor overview

Painting with watercolors to soothe my soul.

I’m one of the first people who will admit that watercolors intimidate me. The idea of a medium I have very little control over (compared to traditional painting) is kind of daunting.

I almost exclaimed in delight when I realized how much fun watercolor is! If you go in with no expectation of the end result, you’ll find yourself creating beautiful things. I ended up using the watercolor paints that come in a tube and basic watercolor paper.  To make your watercolor creations look professional, use masking or painter’s tape to block off the edges to create a border.

Suggested Supplies:

  • Watercolor paint (tube or pan)
  • Watercolor paper (anything else may be too thin!)
  • Brushes (at least 2x, one for – and  another for details)
  • Water
  • Painter’s tape or masking tape *optional
  • Exacto knife *optional (if you want to cut your paper down to size)
