Watercolor Postcards

After a trip to the art store I came home with watercolor postcards and a small travel watercolor set. I haven’t used watercolor since I was in high school, but I’m back at it. To shake of the cobwebs I used Creativebug‘s Beginning Watercolor tutorial by Yao Cheng. Her teaching style is welcoming and clear.

This is a travel set offered by Winsor & Newton plus a pencil from Camel Pencil Company. I love the portability, and the affordability.

As some say, this palette is becoming seasoned!

These crescent shapes are something I’ve been playing with in pencil and pastels. The shapes came out nicely with watercolor. Yao Cheng demonstrates in her tutorials how to let colors bleed in to the other, and the effect is stunning to me.

The crescent shape is one that I love, maybe because it is almost a circle.

What have you been getting in to lately? Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Very successful! I was thinking of bringing my W&N watercolour set on holiday, but what with a 3 and 7 year old in tow, I’m afraid they’ll highjack it. So I’ll probably bring crayons instead…
