Let’s Paint a Columbine Flower!

Howdy friends! Today I have a review of the Grumbacher Deluxe Opaque Watercolor paints, although they were not my favorite they did the trick to paint this columbine flower requested by a viewer.🙂



You can find the reference photo here.

I hope you give this a try using whatever watercolors you have! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. I so appreciate your honest reviews. I want to spend my art dollars wisely. The price does seem high for the quality of these paints.

  4. Hi Lindsay

    Love your tutorials!!!

    I am water coloring more these days. Since I am not good at drawing I rely mstly on stamping images. Sometimes; however I buy a digi image and can’t seem to watercolor the image as my printer ink smuges. Is there another way to watercolor by treating or somehow setting the ink? I leave them to dry for 24+ hours and print directly on watercolor paper.

    Thank for any advice



    • Hi Heidi, what I would do is get a sheet of graphite transfer paper and use that to transfer a digital stamp you printed on copy paper to nice watercolor paper (like when I provide a free painting pattern)and paint that, it would be as if you sketched it with a pencil.
