Weird, Wordy Watercolor Workshop

Watercolors are scary.  I don't know why, but they scare the crap out of a lot of people!  If you're one of those people, just know you're not alone.

In this workshop, I'll go over basic watercolor techniques, layering, color theory, and splattering.  Woo!

I'll go more in depth on supplies in the first part of the lesson, but your basic supply list includes:

Stabilo pencil
Black ink
Dip pen and white ink (my favorite) or white gel pen (I like Gelly Roll or Signo Uniball)
5 x 7 canvas panel painted black
Optional:  PanPastels and stencils for background
Optional:  Twinkling H2Os for background splatters

You'll get a full walk-through and tutorial on the cotton candy boy (including all of my inane blathering) and a time lapse demo of the balloon girl.  You'll also get my tips on finding found poetry, recommendations on watercolor brands from self-diagnosed watercolor junkie, and tricks and tips along the way!

Upon purchase, you will receive a PDF with instant access to the course content and access to the Facebook group for sharing and rabble-rousing.

Absolutely love my digi collage sheets - great images that can be resized and still maintain their original clarity. Instant gratification!

There just aren't enough stars. 10x10x10 Stars! I love this artist and now I have a journal with her art outside and my own touched by hers inside... what else could a fan desire? Awesome seller, spectacular quality craftsmanship and inspiring work all the way around. And bacon wrapping tape on the package, I mean... OMG! I will be back.

Super cute and useful books. The only reason I didn't give a five star is the cover is very lightweight. I refer to my notes often so I question if it will hold up to the use. I would also buy a bigger size if available. I would still highly recommend to anyone!
