Remember our special (eek - expensive!) watercolour paper? On which we painted those bee-autiful watercolour butterflies that we were so very proud of?
Well, it just so happens that we have some left. We also have some bee-autiful red and pink and purple sweet peas.
Aren’t they lovely?
What more relaxing way to spend half an hour on a hot sticky day than with a sheet of special (eek - expensive!) watercolour paper, a jam jar of water, some watercolour paints and a paintbrush.
Remember how it works? How we paint the paper first with water…..
and then, using wet watercolour paint, we allow the paints to mix themselves (on the paper - rather than in the palette).
See how a drop of white…..
transforms the centre bloom.
See how a dab of red…..
or maybe a touch of white…..
swirls into the most bee-autiful patterns…..
as they mix with the colours already there.
