Hi friends, I had a lot of requests to do a tutorial of this vintage pocket watch I painted during world watercolor month so here we are! Here is the reference photo I took with a strong shadow. The shadow is what really inspired me!
We will draw together but feel free to print this out and trace it if you are not comfortable drawing it (I promise I will break it down easily for you tho.) Here is the painting from my sketchbook:

Supplies (affiliate links used)
- I recommend having some granulating watercolors to make the shadow interesting, I used Masha’s watercolors on ETSY. These are beautiful but pricey, you can use any granulating colors you have for texture, look for ultramarines, cobalt, and mars colors.
- I also used Rosa Gallery watercolors, they are a steal and the quality is superb!
- My CraftAmo Brushes
- A compass or something round to trace
- On my original, I used an Arches watercolor sketchbook that was handmade by artsirosi on ETSY. I plan to paint it larger and I think I will use the Paul Rubens glitter watercolor paper for fun!
I am so excited to visit with you live today! If you plan to catch the replay, don’t worry, I don’t dilly-dally on my lives and I answer Q&A in designated blocks that you can skip if you just want the painting tutorial. It’s the best of both worlds! See you soon and til then happy crafting!
