Watercolor Wednesday #1

Mission Watercolor Pallet
Greetings everyone! I am hoping to start a new feature on my blog each week which will be called Watercolor Wednesday. This is my first post, so I thought I would start by giving a tour of my watercolor journey. Number one: I'm not experienced, so if you are hoping to get some great advice, I would like to recommend several of my favorite artists over on You Tube:
  • Angela Fehr--she's an amazing artist and posts regular videos to You Tube.
  • Sandy Allnock--also an amazing artist and card maker. She has a lot of insights, and she considers herself to be learning watercolor as a new medium for her work.
  • Kristina Werner--Kristina is a well-known blogger and card maker...but she also is fabulous with watercolor techniques.
  • And finally, Watercolor Misfit--I love her quirky vlogs and her simple style in helping us all along our artistic journey. 
I follow many others, but the artists listed above teach and inspire me most! 

Each week I plan to share one project I'm either working on or have completed and what I've learned along the way. Today's post is a preview of Day 16's #30daysofbiblelettering project that I have committed to do for Lent. I have been practicing Brush Lettering for almost a year now, and frankly, I wasn't expecting to do very well with a watercolor brush...but...hey! I think this turned out better than all of my attempts with a brush marker!
