Hi friends! Last summer while on vacation I painted a little mushroom in my sketchbook and shared it on Instagram. I had a few requests for a tutorial but I knew I spent quite bit of time on it and I didn’t know how to boil it down into a quick tutorial. Recently though many viewers have told me that they don’t mind the longer videos especially if they are learning so I decided to make a tutorial and take as long as it needed to teach.
This painting is done mainly in watercolor and you can keep it 100% watercolor if you like. I like accents of colored pencils and white pen but if you don’t you can omit them and it will still be lovely. Watch the video and learn how. BTW often what makes a project more advanced isn’t complexity but the time you have to put in to it. This will take time but I have no doubt that you can do this.
Supplies (affiliate links used)
- Watercolor: Winsor & Newton 24 half pan professional set. *If you are looking for a bargain try the 36 full pan White Knights set! You get way more for your money and the quality is great!
- Mixed Media Watercolor journal. (Jane Davenport) I also like Arteza, and Stilman & Birn Mixed Media Beta series.
- Watercolor brushes
- Prismacolor Colored pencils for accents, Col-erase for drawing.
- White gel pen: I used Artnfly which as a finer point, I also like Unibal Signo broad for a wider line.
