Hello friends! It’s the first Thursday – which means I’ve got a treat for you over at MFT’s blog! 


In that post, I mentioned that July is World Watercolor Month – so you know what that means, I’ll be painting up a storm! (And no, Copicistas, I won’t be going solo on watercolor….but will be including a lot more watercolor on Instagram for the month!)

New Watercolor Classes at Art-Classes.com Coming Up!

TWO new watercolor classes are coming to art-classes.com – launching July 1st! My monthly newsletter subscribers got a little sneak peek….and their excitement lets me tell ya it should be a lot of fun!

If you want to get yourself ready for World Watercolor Month, I’d recommend getting your watercolor stash prepped.

  • If you’re running out of a color or two? Stock up!
  • If you’ve wanted to try Daniel Smith Watercolors and haven’t yet, try out my dot card now (it’s cheap!), and then pick some colors to buy.
  • See how I set up my palette and have yours all ready.
  • Haven’t yet made a color chart with reds yellows and blues yet? Get on it!

Neither class leans on having ANY specific colors. And you *can* take them with other brands of watercolor, too, but your results may be a little different. Brushes: #8 and #12 round Black Velvet brushes. Full supply lists will be available in July, but if you’ve got these items and some Arches Cold Press, that’ll get you going!
