Greetings and Happy Monday gang. * there is a very detailed list of supplies at the end of this post.
I hosted a Watercolor Wildflowers class in my studio on Saturday via MeetUp. It was a bleak and snowy day for April but there were wildflowers blooming in the classroom.
My students were all beginners (or so they said) or super rusty. Oh my!
They were inspired and inspiring. It went around like a wild fire.
I'm consistently amazed by the depths of artistry buried within. It may need a bit of loving encouragement and then the blossoming is spontaneous.
I'm sharing some of these paintings to inspire you. Are you feelin' it? I'm loving that palette above.
You can take Watercolor Wildflowers online. Go here for a full description and info on joining the class.
Anyway, I also promised to share some links to online resources such as
Curious.com. I have several courses up at Curious.com. Here is a link to one of my lessons in Mixed Media Cards. I've also participated as a student in painting, drawing, computer and voice classes. They really do have something for everyone there. $60/year for a subscription and access to all classes.
Craftsy In depth online craft and art workshops. A lot of sewing. Purchase classes separately.
Creativebug Online craft and art classes. Very "on trend." Subscription $4.95/mo. for access to all classes.
I hope you all enjoyed today's gallery! Here is a list for some of my favorite watercolor supplies. This is an affiliate list. Be assured. Nothing goes on this list unless it has been thoroughly tested by me. I like the 140# paper best because it is heaver and won't buckle as readily. Practice on less expensive 90# paper. I recommend that you buy basic colors in the highest grade watercolors that you can afford. QoR colors are an excellent value without any loss of quality. Prang are the best cheap watercolors you could get.
