Working Wet on Wet for Beginners

How To Paint a Pine Cone

in Watercolor

This lesson uses basic colors for painting. Liquid masking fluid will make it easier to do a wet background wash, but you can paint around the pinecone if you don't have it.

Trace the outline page and follow along step by step with the video demonstration or written instructions for your own beautiful card or painting.

Outline pages are available in card size and 8 x 10 size. Most students did well with this, but be sure to make your outline drawing or tracing dark enough to see through the color.

Happy Painting!

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.

Happy Painting.
