If you’re reading this post, chances are pretty good that you already love watercolor painting or are embarking upon your journey. Admittedly, we adore the medium—a bold stroke of the brush to plant a tree in a landscape, transparent glazes, not painting an area to suggest its existence—it’s magic! But what about other ways to use watercolor? One idea currently on our minds (thanks, Pinterest and instagram) is brush lettering with watercolor.
Not practical for your fine art purposes, you say? What about a birthday card for a loved one? A gift tag for a sold painting? This could be the activity that breaks you out of a creative slump and puts you back on the path to inspired watercolor painting. Our friends at Cloth Paper Scissors offer mark-making tips here and here (full disclosure: Cloth Paper Scissors is a sister publication).
So tell us: Are you into it? Comment below and tell us why or why not by September 9, and we’ll randomly select one respondent* to win a Pebeo watercolor set!
