Description

Instagram star Jeannie Dickson has created a modern and inviting introduction to watercolor painting that aspiring artists will turn to again and again on their creative journey.

Hello, Watercolor offers a fresh approach to painting watercolors with concise and accessible information. Aspiring artists and journalers will immediately be able to apply the techniques they learn on these pages--including brush lettering--to more than 15 exciting step-by-step projects, from painting origami animals, sparkling glass shards, and beautiful alphabets to producing luscious florals and fanciful unicorns. Among the features that make this handbook both a valuable learning tool and source of inspiration:
  • Projects include a list of techniques with cross-references
  • Each project includes watercolors used with swatches so readers can make substitutions easily
  • Popular color palettes and color "recipes" for foolproof mixing
  • 12 monthly challenges with daily or weekly prompts to inspire painting all year long
  • Templates to trace and paint for some projects
  • Ideas to share work and connect with others (e.g., Instagram)
