Easter Bunny in Watercolor for Beginners
Simple Card for Fun and Practice
Simple Card for Fun or Practice
If you've never done watercolor, this is a fun lesson to start you off.
Use salt for texture in your background OR in your egg. Copy my colors or substitute your own favorite colors to see how they turn out.
Any paints and paper will work, and if you don't have a blank notecard, fold your watercolor paper in half and paint the card on the front. All you need is an envelope or hand them out to your friends and family.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
