Altenew Watercolor Coloring Book and Watercolor Brushes

Hello and welcome!  I\’ve had a delightful weekend playing with Altenew\’s  new  Watercolor Coloring Book and Watercolor Brushes (Bundle).  The coloring book is such a great idea!  There are 12 designs…24 printed pages on good quality watercolor paper.  Each design has a black outline and a \”no-line\” outline.  I am going to the beach soon and this coloring book will be making the trip as it will be so packable. Grab the book, brushes and watercolors and I am set for hours of creating.  I also think this would make a great gift.  

Altenew watercolor Lilly and Poppy

I used Altenew\’s 36 Pan Watercolor Set for all of my painting.  For the Lilly, I wanted to work on mixing watercolors.  I started with the salmon pinks but did a lot of custom paint mixing with my pinks and greens.

With both paintings, I went slow and added layer upon layer of color.  For me, this is the secret to watercolor painting.  Add color and blend with a damp brush with clean water, let dry and repeat. The quality of the paper in the coloring book allowed me to add lots of layers without any worry about the paper breaking down.

I liked the Lilly so much that I framed it and set it on the ledge around my bath tub.

This no-line Poppy was loads of fun to paint!  I didn\’t mix the paints but used the color right out of the pans.  Lovely and feminine.  I did add a few accents to the flower\’s center with a black pen and white gel pen.

 If you want to up your watercoloring, consider taking Emily Midgett\’s Watercolor 101 Class.  I took it last fall and it improved my watercoloring skills more than any other class I\’ve taken.
