Hollyhocks with Full Summer Colors
Lush Wet on Wet Background with Limited Palette
How did you do that amazing background?
That's what your friends will be asking you after this lesson. Working wet on wet can be a challenge, but this video demonstration shows exactly how you can get lush, glowing colors for the perfect background to your summer flowers. Every painting is unique with watercolor washes.
Limited Palette - Easier To Use and Better Results
This lesson uses only four (or five) colors: cobalt blue, phthalo blue, yellow, and quinacridone red, for the entire painting. Learning to mix the perfect colors is easier and doable with fewer colors, plus the limited palette will automatically give your painting a professional look.

Your green shades and darks are built in with these colors - don't struggle with green anymore! You'll be amazed at the range of color and value you can achieve.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson.
My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.
I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.
I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!
Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.
