I love her watercoloring tutorials.. Cloudy Sky 

Leila --- 225 days ago -

Do you paint? I love to watch the demos but they make it look so easy. I know my picture would look like a kindergartner did it but it sure does sound like it would be a relaxing hobby. 

Texashley30 --- 225 days ago -

Yes I just started learning how by watching tutorials :) I'm getting better the more I practice. I agree..It is a very relaxing hobby. 

Leila --- 225 days ago -

Good for you! I would love to be able to paint. 

Texashley30 --- 225 days ago -

You should try! Got all my painting supplies at Michael's.

0 This is one of my first watercolor paintings..I tried lol I don't think it looks too bad. 

Texashley30 --- 222 days ago -

0 :) 

Ashes --- 176 days ago -

Anyone paint or watercolor? Share your art.. Even if you think your art looks like a kindergarteners painting :) 

whatchamacallit --- 176 days ago -

Nice! You have to work so quickly with watercolor but there is nothing like it for painting sky, water and glass! 

Ashes --- 176 days ago -

Thanks! I need to practice my waves lol but I'm getting better. Yes each watercolor painting takes about 10 minutes.. If longer you have to re-wet the painting to remove lines. 

whatchamacallit --- 176 days ago -

Have you tried water color pencils, yet? 

Ashes --- 176 days ago -

Well I have a case of color pencils in my water coloring kit, but I don't think they are watercolor pencils bc they don't dissolve in the paint.. 

whatchamacallit --- 176 days ago -

You can get water color pencils that will dissolve when you put them into water. Gives you a lot of control over where the color goes. Also, if the effect is too harsh for your painting, you can put a wash on the paper before hand and they will blend really well.

I use both, depending on what I'm doing. Pencils are great for definite, fine lines, stems, grass, etc. that you can't always get with a brush. If you have a planned project in mind, not just winging it, you can use the pencils that match the paint color you are going to use, for an outline drawing and then when you come back through with the paint they will disappear!
Buy the most expensive ones you can afford as this is something that the quality will show in how easy they dissolve and flow into the painting.

Another thing, I could not paint without rubber cement, for resist, on a painting. Keeps bleeding to a minimum and you can keep our colors separated, if you let them dry in between. 

Ashes --- 176 days ago -

Thank you! I'm new at this so that helps a lot :) do you know if Michael's has watercolor brush pens? 

whatchamacallit --- 176 days ago -

Michael's may have water color pencils but I'm not sure. I know Hobby Lobby does and you can get a coupon for 40% off almost anytime, off the internet. I was talking about pencils not brush pens, is that what you meant? 

Ashes --- 176 days ago -

I was talking about brush pens but was also wondering if they had the pencils. I will have to look at Hobby Lobby first since they already have the pencils.. Thank you :) 

whatchamacallit --- 176 days ago -

I've never used brush pens but I'm sure they both have them. 

Ashes --- 176 days ago -

Me either. Thank you :)

They use water brushes in this tutorial 

whatchamacallit --- 176 days ago -

Yes, they have those at Hobby Lobby, for sure...I even have some around here somewhere and have used them years ago but for some reason I didn't remember the term, brush pens. Maybe they have another name or I have just forgotten, as it has been years. 

Ashes --- 175 days ago -

Idk I've seen them called water brushes, and watercolor brush pens. :) I've never heard of rubber cement either. Hah. 

whatchamacallit --- 175 days ago -

I've never heard of rubber cement either.


It's actually a glue. You brush it on and once it dries it will pull off the paper very easily leaving clean unpainted areas for you to fill in with another color or leave unpainted. 

Ashes --- 175 days ago -

Oh! OK I know what that is. 

PICASSO --- 173 days ago -

I can't figure out how to post pictures. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 173 days ago -

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 173 days ago -

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 173 days ago -

It's kind of not user friendly, sorry. You just have to delete what's in that 4th box and paste in your link, then click ok. 

Ashes --- 173 days ago -

I can't figure out how to post pictures.?

I used Four P's advice from a long time ago :) use Tinypic.com ..Go to Tinypic.com and press "choose file" then the green box that says "upload now" then a box will appear and you have to unlock the code. Then press the green box "Upload Now" again. Then choose "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards." Copy the image. Then come back to Kingwood Underground and copy paste your image to the fourth box.. The image URL. Remove the inside [] [] and leave the outside [] []. Or it will not work.
