Hi friends! Today at 12:30pm Eastern Time I will have a live painting class and you can watch it here, or if you want to chat along you can watch it on YouTube.

We will be painting a bucket of geraniums with an American flag, here is the pattern. You can use a clear or white crayon to save the white of the paper on the forget-me-not flowers and stars or use masking fluid. If you use wax don’t transfer the stars to your watercolor paper or you will trap the pencil marks on the paper.

You can watch the live show or the replay in the player below BUT if you want to ask questions as we go you will need to watch it on YouTube.

Supplies from Sponsor Jerry’s Artarama:

I hope you can make it to this live painting class. There won’t be a live class next Friday because I am teaching at the Heirloom Productions Stamp Show in West Springfield MA and I still have a couple of spots open in the second class if you want to come! Thanks for stopping by and till next time happy crafting!
