I wanted to stamp and color ALL the otters. So I did! I cut a long piece of watercolor paper – 12″ x 5.5″, then scored it at 4″ and 8″ to make three panels. Then I got busy stamping! Watercoloring the water was a blast – and I show you in the video a few ways to “recover” if your painting got funky along the way. (A few folks at CHA got to hear the backstory. Shhh! Pinkyswear! lol)

I love that Daniel Smith watercolor is nicely transparent – so it’s easy to make the floating otters look like they’re “in” the water.
