A Pretty Flower for a Very Sweet Viewer!

Dear friends, I don’t think you realize the impact you make on my life when I read your emails, messages and comments. Today’s video goes out to a very sweet lady LaVonne who shared a lovely photograph of this bromeliad flower growing in her yard and gave me permission to share it with you.

Grab your paper, paints and brushes for a fun tutorial using only 3 colors! You will need Hookers Green, Lemon Yellow and a cool red like Magenta, Alizarin crimson or Rose Red. This can be painted with only a #6 round brush but you might also want a 1/2″ angular for leaf shading. I am painting on a 140# Strathmore watercolor greeting card.

Video!

I hope you enjoyed this relaxing tutorial and if you give it a try, please let me know how it went. I also have another favor to ask. This dear lady who shared the photo is back in the hospital, if you could send some positive thoughts her way and maybe leave a word of encouragement for her in the comments I know it would make her day. She has no idea that I am mentioning this and I hope I am not speaking out of turn but it is the least I can do for someone who lifted me up recently. Take care of yourselves and til next time happy crafting!
