Weaving Two Watercolor Paintings For One Unique Work of Art
Great Results for Any Level of Painting Experience
Turn Two Ho-hum Paintings Into One Unique and Eye Catching Work of Art
Do you have paintings you've tried more than once (that you still don't want to keep) laying around? Weave them together for a unique look.
Are you a beginner and unhappy with your work? Do another one. Work fast and free and don't sweat the results (it's good practice). Then weave those together.
Weaving may be awkward with the first three or four strips you weave, but it quickly gets easier and the results are surprising.
Usually I hear, 'Wow, that looks great!'
This lesson contains written instructions, an outline page to trace, a reference photo and finished painting examples, plus a video demonstration of painting and weaving.
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!
