A Beginner Friendly Winter Landscape LIVE at 12:30pm ET!

Hi friends! Take a break from the shopping and wrapping today and relax and paint with me at 12:30pm Eastern Time! We will use this reference photo as a starting point.


As always you can watch the live stream or the reply in the player below but if you want to chat live be sure to watch on the YouTube watch page!

I hope you can take a painting break with me today! I went to bed early last night (9:30pm!) so I would be firing on all cylinders today! I have a few gifts to wrap this morning and knowing I get a painting break motivates me to tackle the tasks at hand. Be kind to yourself this weekend (and always) remember it doesn’t matter what’s under the tree as much as who’s around it:) Happy crafting!

PS. Need more watercolor instruction? Try a class! The Essential Tools and Techniques for Watercolor class is designed to provide all of the techniques you need to know to get started off on the right foot in watercolor painting with 5 hours of in-depth step by step instructions. Oh! and I made a coupon (HOLIDAY17) to save you 35% ! (the link above contains the coupon code)


Texture Toolbox Feathers & Fowl is the first in a watercolor texture series and is an intermediate level class. I NEVER want you to feel pressure to buy a class but if you want more in-depth instruction than I can provide in a YouTube video as well as the ability to share your work in the classroom and get feeback the classes are available. 🙂  The coupon is good for this class too! Happy Holidays!

  1. VERY wise advice to be kind to ourselves and what counts are the people around the tree! I always forget about it while trying to make things PERFECT. I end up being totally exhausted and can only start to enjoy Christmas after everything’s over and everybody is happy.

    I’m going to give it a try this year .. see what it’s like! And I hope YOUR Christmas will be wonderful too!


    • I just watched the live paint-along and was delighted! The photo looks so boring compared to what you painted! This makes me want to give it a try myself.


  2. this looks so awesome! I see our Mt. Baker, everyday, and think, jeeze, I sure wish I could learn how to paint that! Thanks, and have a wonderful Christmas, Lindsay!


  3. Beautiful study in contrasts between the mountains, trees and bushes…


  4. Love this painting❣️ I listened to part of it and definitely want to paint this one. Working on your Craftsy Class just now, trying mixed media for the first time and loving that too! Wishing you and your family very Happy Holidays! 🎄🎉🎁 Thank You for your classes! I’m so glad I took your watercolor classes and learned to paint this past year at 63 years old!!
