Paint-Along – PreClass

Welcome to class! Before we get started, I wanted to share a few thoughts…

Note: The paintings in this class were filmed at the start of my watercolor journey – I was super excited about them, and now in 2022…I look at them and question myself! HOWEVER – that means they’re nice and easy. So please enjoy them, paint along…..and get started on your journey!

Supplies are important – but if you don’t have these, try what you DO have. You can always decide to try other paints or brushes later if yours don’t work. If you can’t see the video below, click HERE.


If you have other watercolor supplies feel free to try them out – but know that results may differ. Affiliate links are used (which means I receive a commission at no extra cost to you).

  • Palette is not required (you can squeeze blobs of paint on a plate or tile). Instructor uses metal palettes but a plastic one is okay too; be sure you have at least 3 decently sized mixing wells. (See a video on setting up a palette HERE)
  • Spray bottles (or use an empty household spray bottle – make sure it’s clean!)
  • Tools and more:


If you’d like to create a palette like mine, here’s more on how I set it up (see the blog post HERE) – pdf is HERE.

Downloadable sketches

…are located within each lesson.

I'm an artist, papercrafter, instructor, Youtuber - and all around creative geek! I love all the mediums and experimenting with styles. I especially love seeing others take a step on their own creative journey...whether for the first time, or leaping into new territory as a creative veteran!
