Anyone out there have something new they want to try and have been too afraid?!
Both of my hands are up! I have loved watercolor for some time now, but I kept telling myself I wasn’t an artist. My sister got those genes… and boy, oh boy is she an amazing artist! My Grammy paints, my aunt paints, my cousin paints, and my grandpa on the other side paints… should I go on? I should just be able to pull out some sort of artistic ability out of my DNA… right? So I finally decided to quit doubting myself and jump in. Well, I am so glad I finally did because learning to watercolor is amazing!
Learning to Watercolor in 30 Days
I found this Everyday Watercolor book on Amazon so I thought I would give it a try. I also ordered some paints with the book.
They are not the nicest or best quality paints, but I wasn’t sure I would like painting so I didn’t want to invest too much money until I knew for sure I loved it. Being that I am a beginner, I don’t know the difference anyway so I am just going with it.
If you are wanting to give watercolor a try here is what you will need: (affiliate links)
- Everyday Watercolor Book
- Watercolor paint
- Brushes size 4 and size 10 (mine are just nice synthetic brushes to make sure I liked it first)
- Paint Dish
- Cold pressed watercolor paper
I am on day 8 of the book and I am learning so much. Plus, it is fun to experiment and figure out how the colors run together… that’s my favorite part about watercolor!
How about a free watercolor printable too? I wrote this and then added my watercolored leaves as a backdrop. So fun, right? Click here to download
I hope you enjoy learning to watercolor as much as I have!!
