Watch the video and paint along!

I decided it would be fun to paint a bowl of peaches on a weathered blue table after reading [listening to the audio book actually] The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen. It was a really fun book and would make a great summer beach read. I think I might need to download a couple more of Sarah Addison Allen‘s book to read on vacation, she has a nice way of describing small town life and the bond of female friendships (in this book at least!)

Supplies:

  • Watercolors (Rembrandt) Cad Red Deep, Cad Yellow Deep, Olive Green, Turquoise, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna
  • 9″x12″ Arches watercolor block CP 
  • A variety of watercolor brushes
  • #10 & #4 round (Aqualon)
  • 3/4″ flat (Mimik)
  • 1″ oval Wash or any large brush for wetting the paper (Zen) *This kitThis kit would have all the brushes you would need and they are high quality.
  • Other: Pencil for sketching, white plastic eraser, 2 water buckets, paper towels

***If you need paper and want to try Rembrandt paint this kit has a 9″x12″ arches block and 7 tubes of Rembrandt for a steal (you will need to mix your greens though to paint today’s painting, I have this set and the block I am painting on today came in this kit. It is a nice way to sample Rembrandt paint before making a big investment too and an extra block of Arches watercolor paper always comes in handy!)
