Paint a Lovely Sunrise…or sunset?

Howdy folks, I hope your week has gotten off to a good start. Monday morning was a blur here, 2 kids going off to school early for band, I forgot to pack their snacks so I sent them in with the other child to avoid having to make a trip down to the school only to find out that one of the first kids left her backpack in the car. I am so glad we live so close to the school! I walked the dog, got dressed and sat down to chek my email and made the mistake of clicking on Pinterest and 20 minutes just disappeared! Then I remembered, oh yeah, I have a blog to update and actual things to do LOL! So I decided to brew another pot of coffee (apparently the 1st one didn’t do the trick) and kick this Monday into gear! Today I am going to show you how to paint a sun rise, or sunset, whatever you like. It only takes a few minutes and it might be just the thing you need to get productive today:

DCF 1.0

I have a lot of tips and tricks in the video so I think it will be really useful to beginners or first time watercolor painters, you can do this even if you have never picked up a brush and all you have are your children’s water paints. Give it a try!

I used the 5″x7″ watercolor cards that I have been using in all of these mini tutorials. They are a great no risk surface because they are inexpensive and decent quality. I bought mine at Blick Art Materials but you might find them in one of the big craft stores and you can use a coupon. I get the 100 pack for the best savings. That’s it for today. I need to wisk around and do a  post weekend tidy/cleaning catch up then I am going to have fun in my studio! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Sounds like my Monday. Kitten came in the house and I chased her around for 10 minutes trying to get her out no luck. Just hope my older inside cat doesn’t hurt her. He is a very jealous cat. Doesn’t like my grandsons, hides and hisses at them. Made me late for work. Good thing I work for husband & a friend. Love your water color paintings. Have a good day.


  2. Love this sunrise/sunset! Beautiful! I love your blog and all of your great tutorials. You make everything look so easy, and you are such an inspiration! Hugs! Becky


  3. You always have so much information to impart, I learn so much from you. Now, I need to try water coloring. I do love your work.


  4. Yes, I love it too! I’ve saved all your watercolour tutorials to my favorites so I can go back and watch them over and over.

    I remember mornings like yours when I was raising my three daughters. Some mornings I was sure no one was going to get where they were suppose to be on time!

    FYI – Canada geese fly south for the winter!…except for the ones who have forgotten how to migrate and they just brave it out!
