Bonjour tout le monde! Je suis Sandy, et j’ai un tableau por vous aujourd’hui! Peerless watercolor, heading for a peerless city: Paris! I’m practicing a little of my college French…ooh la la!  I hope I remember more of it by the time I arrive in Paris this afternoon. I was blessed to discover that during the recent (ugh) news from Paris, I was able to almost completely understand newscasters speaking French…though I’m challenged to say much of anything anymore! Oh my French teachers would be so sad. But maybe it’ll be like riding a Parisian bike!

Peerless watercolor

In the video I’ll show you my first Peerless watercolor painting of an actual person image…I’ve done techniques, flowers, and a little object here and there, but this is more ambitious than I perhaps should have tried? But it was a fun try at least! This is the 4th take…the others didn’t come out very well, and though this had its challenges, I decided to call it DONE! Enjoy the video below or click HERE to watch it in HD on YouTube!

I’ll let you know how my little book for my Peerless Watercolor set works out; the Bonus Pak (Small) is the one I purchased but I linked you to some other options too. You can google for storage solutions for the other size of Peerless too, but know that these “2×2” pieces are actually a little larger. They appear to be handcut, since each is different – which, to me, is a nice thing, I like feeling as though someone cut a chunk of painted paper especially for me, and that it wasn’t some “perfect” machine. In the video I show you what I did with my extra pieces that had to be cut off.

Ps–that cold moved into my chest but not til after seeing great sights in Scotland! Once I get to Paris later today, I’ll lay low for the evening and get rolling on Thursday. Pray! 🙂

Supplies

Have you tried Peerless watercolors yet? Or is there another type you love to paint with?
