Painting with unfamiliar colors (Floral tutorial)

Happy 4th of July American friends! Today I did a impromptu live painting tutorial using the odd colors I shared in yesterday’s post. I figured it would keep me honest and from dipping into some of my tried and true colors if I worked live on camera with witnesses:) Also you could see how I dealt with unexpected reactions and mixes. Here is how the painting turned out.


Since I did this livestream on my own I held the Q&A til the end of the video since I can’t read questions and paint at the same time, especially with color I am not used to:) Here is the tutorial:

If this inspired you to try new old colors or different colors I’d love to see what you come up with. You can share your palette and paintings here on our Facebook page. Fore more details on my palette check out yesterday’s blog post and the Spin Doctor blog. Thanks for playing along and til next time happy crafting AND have a safe and happy 4th of July!

  7. Love to watch you paint. Took me three times to finish. Trying to spray paint my two Cracker Barrell rocking chairs. The Tennessee weather over the last ten years hasn’t been good to them. Hot and humid here.
