Hi friends! Are you ready for a long watercolor painting lesson? Let’s paint gourds!
You only need 4 colors: A warm red (cad red, scarlet, vermilion) a warm yellow (cad yellow, new gamboge, indian yellow) prussian blue and sap green. Watch the video to see how easy it is!
I am using Neo watercolors from Kusakabe, use the coupon code thefrugalcrafter if you want to order any to save 10%. As I mentioned in the video I would recommend just buying the colors you would use (check for tried and true pigments) rather than the sets.
Bottom line the Neo watercolors are OK but honestly I think you can get more for your money getting the Holbein watercolors on Amazon or the Turner watercolors at Jerrys. Both are a higher quality paint at a lower price. Now, don’t get me wrong, painting with these watercolors was fine. I am concerned with a few of the pigments in them (PY1, BV10, PR83) and some tubes of paints say “not listed” under pigment info, I don’t think that is acceptable when you are buying artist quality paint.
I wanted to love these watercolor because I love their Aqyla line of water mixable alkyd paints and found them a great value using lightfast and tried and true pigments but the watercolor did not deliver in my opinion.
Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored video but I did receive the paint for free for review purposes.
I hope you try painting gourds and pumpkins using whatever watercolors you have and til next time happy crafting!
