LIVE today at 12:30pm ET: Painting Hyacinth Flowers in a Mason Jar

Edited to add update on painting. I felt that the watercolor only version of the painting left something to be desired so I added Mermaid Markers (ink) acrylic paint pens, and watercolor crayons to finish off this piece and I am much happier with it.

Hi friends! Today we are going to paint a loose floral bouquet! Below is the practise painting I did before the live stream.

We will have fun and let the paint do the work. I hope you will paint along. Please use whatever watercolor paint and paper you have on hand (even the kids supplies!) I will link the supplies I used below if you want to check them out. There was a great deal on the paints I used and I do earn a small commission when you shop through my affiliate links. 🙂 You can watch the live show or the replay in the player below but if you want to chat with fellow painters live or ask me questions be sure to tune in on the YouTube watch page at 12:30pm ET.

Supplies:

  • Cotman Watercolors (Permanent Rose, Cad Yellow Pale Hue, Hookers Green Light, Turquoise, Burnt Umber) *This is a great deal on the set of 45 pans I have. I recommend you remove the 5 colores we are using and put them on a palette or plate so you don’t get confused with all of the other colors in the kit. 🙂 I used poster putty to stick them in my palette🙂
  • Watercolor Brushes (Royal & Langnickel Majestic)
  • Watercolor paper: Aquabee #140 100% cotton (my practise paper) and the live painting will be done on Arches 9″x12″ 140# CP

We will sketch together and paint from out imagination! (That’s what happens when my printer breaks and I have printed out a reference photo yet LOL!)

Reminder, next week we will be on Daylight Saving Time so if you don’t turn your clocks back you will need to adjust for your time zone (we will be on at 12:30pm ET Daylight Saving Time which converts to 1:30pm ET standard time.) Happy crafting!
