VIDEO: Easy Watercolour Rainbow background And Flower Art

Make this easy watercolor rainbow background, see how in the video by Kim Dellow

After last week’s Autumnal journal page I thought I would jump straight back into Summer with a rainbow watercolor background and some flower art. I think I can not quite let go of the idea of Summer sun! I know, we have to move on with the season but it doesn’t hurt to have a quick look back from time to time does it? Well this look back comes with a really easy technique for adding your own watercolor rainbows to your next painting or art journal project.

I am also trying out absorbent grounds this week and seeing how they work with the Hydrus watercolors. But don’t worry if you don’t have either because I share some tips on what else you can use to make this watercolor rainbow background. VIDEO: Easy Watercolour Rainbow background And Flower Art

    Hi Kim,
    that is absolutely gorgeous!
    Right now I am some sort of obsessed with watching painting techniques on youtube I came across by chance while watching American News.
    You might want to check out Jay Lee Watercolor Painting (yes, color without u 😉
    That guy is amazing.
    You better start saving the toilet paper tubes and bottle caps and buying cotton buds.
    And there I thought I am using lots of unusual things for painting. Couldn't be more wrong LOL

    PS: you sure don't need to collect babys….

      Hey Rena,

      Jay Lee has been popping up in my feed too recently, amazing looking stuff isn't it?! It just feeds into our recycling obsession, can't through anything away! LOL!

      I hope you have been having lots of painting fun this week!
