Do you get stumped trying to put together color combinations in your Watercolor Art?
I made this little guide for myself a while ago just to have handy for watercolor projects. I thought you might find it helpful too. It’s just a bunch of my favorite color combinations with mixing recipe notes to the side. You can find it along with a bunch of other fun watercolor projects and resources for your creative life in the Lily and Thistle Resource Library
Watercolor is such a great medium because it’s so versatile and dries quickly making it easy to do during nap time or whenever you can sneak some time for yourself. This is one of many projects I’ve made to help you feel more comfortable and confident with this awesome medium.

Do you want a fun way to use your chart? I created this fall trees tutorial. It is so fun and forgiving. Just play with the paint! Remember more water equals lighter, pastel-like colors, less water equals darker, more vibrant colors. Just have fun and don’t overthink it. For this one, I made you a video. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions! I’m posting to YouTube so if you’d like to be notified of new videos, you can subscribe HERE.
