I know... I'm the worst! I have been so bad since returning to Denver about updating my blog and making videos.
In my defense, I've been REALLY busy with fulfilling Patreon orders, Paintalong tutorial (see results here), streaming, writing my book, studying, collaborations, commissions, and continuing the quest of selling/giving away my stuff.
All good stuff, business-wise.
So here's a new tutorial video for those of you who are learning watercolor!
In this video I talk about the benefits (and tricks) to painting on a small scale - something I do daily. I go through about 100 watercolor postcards a month, and it's VERY different than painting large. They are so great for studies, giveaways, gifts, etc. and really force you to look at minimizing a landscape to it's base elements.
When I'm painting these, I often ask myself "What are the minimum amount of brush strokes required to bring the landscape to life?" And what can I actually fit without making it too "busy?"
And just for fun, here are a couple images from recent projects and work around the studio.
Plus so much research, writing, and illustrations for my book! If you want to find out more about that, visit the official website and see previous blog post!
