Good evening friends! I had just about dozed off knitting by the fire when I remembered that I promised you a tutorial tonight! Well, grab your watercolor paints and let’s paint a poinsettia! BTW, if you ever need a crafty fix and I have nothing new on my blog I usually have some new stuff on my YouTube channel that I haven’t had a chance to blog yet (there are at least 3 videos up I have not blogged yet currently) You can even subscribe to my channel and get notified when I post a new video! hmmm, that might be Lindsay overload huh?
I used Yellow Ocher, Cadmium Red, Sap Green and Ultramarine Blue on this painting as well as a 1/2″ flat and #8 round. Remember limited supplies = harmonious painting. You can go up or down a size or two brush depending on what you have and what you are comfortable with. No hard and fast rules tonight! I painted this on a 140# cold press watercolor card.
Well that’s it for me, I’m going to see if I can finish a few more rows of my first cable knit project tonight before I get too droopy! Cables are super fun and awesome and I will be sharing soon! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
