Hi friends! To start 2021 off right here is a bright and happy painting lesson for you!
It’s a long one so feel free to break it up into smaller chunks. I took breaks during filming and during one break I took down and packed up the Christmas decorations. Switching gears helps give your mind a break and come up with creative solutions to artistic problems.
We will be working with mixed media. I start with watercolor crayons but if you want to use watercolor it will totally work! Dig through your stash, you might have a similar product to what I am using that you can use if you don’t have the same exact thing. Supplies come and go and honestly, you can always substitute. Don’t have paint pens? Try gel pens or acrylic paint and a dip pen or fine brush. It’s all good!
