Howdy friends! Today we are going to use only four colors to paint this cheerful yellow mug of coffee in a loose and juicy style!
Originally I painted this on a cold press greeting card but I wasn’t happy with it so I decided to redo it. You can do that, did you know? If you see more in your subject or are unsatisfied do it over (and nobody has to see the first one if you don’t want them too!)
That’s what’s so great about painting. You can add-on, improve, finalize and get it just how you envision before sharing it with others. Please let go if the inner critic and enjoy the feeling of paint and water on paper!

- Turner watercolors *I recommend the 18 color 5ml watercolor set as it is an inexpensive way to try many colors for about $26. The colors we are using are permanent yellow, ultramarine blue, burnt umber and pyroll scarlet (also available in individual 15 ml tubes)
- Brushes: Mimik faux squirrel *I recommend the value set
- Nujabi handmade watercolor paper
