You say Ta-MAY-to I say Tam-Ah-to, let’s just paint some!

Hi Folks! Today I have a water media tutorial that will get the dust off of your watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons (or water-soluble oil pastels) and watercolor paints. I’ll also show you how I work through an error I made in drawing so it turns out all right in the end.  You can find the beautiful photo by Lilian Bell I used as a reference here. It is from a site called Paint my Photo and it is free to join too! The video is sped up and voiced over. the painting took one hour to complete so don’t feel like you have to rush. Remember, painting should be relaxing and enjoyable! Here is the tutorial:

I hope you try mixing your watermedia! It is fun to build up layers and you can correct mistakes more easily than with regular watercolor painting, plus, it is just plain fun ad that is reason enough to do it! I hope you have some time to be creative today. I will be at the ball field for a baseball double header so I will have my crochet bag with me. What are you making today? Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
