Let’s Paint a Clematis in Watercolor!

Hi friends! I have a relaxed painting tutorial for you tonight, it was requested by a couple of viewers recently:


I used my QOR watercolors on a 140# Strathmore greeting card. I sketched the design with watercolor pencils but you can use a regular pencil if you prefer. You can find the lovely reference photo by Nicola B. at Paint my Photo.


Yes, I do realize I forgot to scrape the veins on the last petal, luckily I noticed it before the paint dried (unluckily it was after I turned off the camera LOL!) I hope you give this fun painting a try, and til next time happy crafting!
