  1. This is SO pretty!
    What do you think is easier to use: these watercolor pencils or Zigs? I don’t think my Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer are easy to use for stamps because my tips are never long enough and I hate sharpening them all the time.


  2. I enjoyed watching this tutorial so very much! Your painting of the dragonfly is wonderful, and I love the mat you made for it. What a great idea!
    Thanks Lindsay.


  3. Thank you for the video. I plan on trying this with my watercolors.


  4. Love all the techniques you showed in the video. Thanks for all the ideas. Dragonflies are my favorite!!


  5. Lived it. I want to try that brand if art products too


    • Your name sounds German! If you are living in Germany too and find a way how to order those pencils, please tell me how! Each time I try to they say they don’t ship to Germany. That happens a lot.


  6. Thank you Lindsay for all you do, and this wonderful opportunity.


  7. Such a beautiful dragonfly! I enjoyed seeing all your techniques. I have seen you do it so many times, but each time I see some little detail that I missed before. Thanks so much.


  8. OMG Lindsay got the Arteza watercolor pencils and I love them they are so creamy and easy to work with. Thanks for all of the work you do! I have learned so much from you through the years! Many Blessings!
