I’m beginning a watercolor flowers series as I prepare for my trip to Europe next month…soooo excited! But I seriously need to loosen up my watercolor skills. I’m also trying to play with all my different watercolor sets to figure out which to take with me…so look out for more coming up!

Watercolor flowers

I wanted to make watercoloring something that would look like a freehand painting into something anyone could try…so I’m using stencils! In the video, I’ll show you where to place pencil lines for the petals – so pick up the stencil (links below) and paint along with me. Enjoy the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Watercolor flowers can be painted for cards – or for art on your wall! This one ended up on a card but would also have made a lovely gift if it were framed.

Next Friday I’ll share #2 in the series, and I decided to be nice and give you a heads up on the stencil I’ll be using…you can put it on the same order as this one and be ready to paint along with me. (I’m also linking to both watercolor papers used in these two videos – either one works great.)

I might continue this series if it’s popular – so leave some love here and on the video, and I’ll see if I can work up some more for you!
