Watercolor Basics {video}

First off I have to say “Thank You!” To all of the folks who purchase my first ever painting kit! I am so honored that you will allow me to teach you. I have been busy today designing another beginner painting packet that I hope you will enjoy: Learn To Paint Pussy Willows, isn’t it so springy? Well, it’s what spring looks like here in Maine, brown, gray and white:

I decided to make a video explaining the basic watercolor supplies and a few basic techniques. I’m sorry it is so long, when I looked at the clock during filming I nearly fell over, it is almost a half an hour…as my husband would say, watching it take a commitment LOL! So you might want to grab a beverage and get comfy :P

Here is the basic supply list I mentioned in the video, you can print it out and take it to the store with you.


I still have the Introductory special on the Learn to Paint Birch Trees project going on ($1) so if you are curious about this series of lessons you can try for a buck, not much of a risk if you ask me :)

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Wow, you know everything about everything don’t you! Fabulous video Lindsay.

  2. Great info! Seriously, I’m wondering what else you do – you know it all! Wonderful of you to share, thank you!

  3. It’s not really a problem that the video is long. I enjoyed watching it. And I think that it’s better that you took your time explaining and demonstrating your skill. It makes it easier and better for your viewers/readers to understand and appreciate art.

  4. Hi Lindsay. Because of your wonderful tutorials, I have been doing more and more painting with watercolors. I really want to get a set of Inktense Watercolor pencils. I saw a set with 3.4mm cores and a set with 4mm cores. The pencils with 3.4mm cores are considerably lower priced. I’m wondering which set I should go with. Thank you so much for everything you do. You have been such an inspiration to me.
