Hi friends! I have had many requests to paint succulents in watercolor, honestly, I may already have and I forgot LOL! After 2000 videos they start to blur together!
I picked up a couple potted succulents last month in a vain attempt to bring some springtime into my home. I don’t know how much more dour Maine weather I can take. The snowbirds are looking smarter every year! I snapped a photo of the potted succulent arrangement (I got it Home Depot, it was around $7) so you can see the plant I am working from.
I got a magnifying lamp from Brightech (today’s sponsor) and it made seeing the detail so much easier. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and it has tremendously helped in the eye strain department. You can learn how to paint the succulent in today’s video and see the lamp in action in case it’s something that might be useful to you!

I think I’ll spend sometime outside this afternoon. I drove down the beach after I went to the grocery store today and walked around. The water is really high this year, there was hardly any beach at my little pond. I think I need to pack up some paint and go back and make my own sunshine. Til next time happy crafting!
PS if you don’t want to draw your own succulents I did design a set of succulent rubber stamps for Rubber Stamp Tapestry you might enjoy:)
