Watercolor Painting

Painting with watercolors can be a relaxing and rejuvenating activity - especially with some calm music in the background and a cup of tea. In fact, it can be a nice time to think and meditate on topics while keeping your hands busy.



A bonus is that you really don't need to have any type of artistic talent to paint. Really. If you know how to draw a few shapes and lines, you can paint something truly beautiful.



To get started painting with watercolors, you only need a few supplies:


A watercolor set, such as this

A palette, such as this

Watercolor paper, like this

Paintbrushes, such as these


Depending on your level of skill and ambition, there are lots of great tutorials on YouTube to create different things with watercolors, but you can also create beautiful artwork using simple lines and shapes. These look especially nice when used in a repeated fashion. This artwork can be used to make cards, the back of readings for a local Feast or devotional, or as framed gifts for friends.



Have fun and get creative!
