  • Bee 100% cotton watercolor paper
  • Cotman by Windsor and Newton watercolor paints
  • Princeton round size 6
  • 2 cups of clean water
  • Tissue
  • Compass or anything with a round shape to draw a circle
  • Pencil + eraser
  • Masking tape ( optional )

Something to keep in mind:

  • To make your painting process easier, it’s good to mix and have a color palette ready beforehand.
  • If you’re not sure about color harmony, you can go on Pinterest, search for ” color palette”, you’ll find a ton of color schemes that are already combined together and apply the one you like to your painting.
  • Draw a light pencil circle as a guideline, if you don’t want the pencil to show through ( as watercolor is transparent) you can erase the line as you paint.
  • Have the elements with slightly different sizes, colors to create a natural and organic look for the wreath
  • Even watercolor tends to dry lighter, it’s a best practice to go from light to dark. Later on, if anything is too light, you can always go back in and add more pigments. In the contrast, if you want to make something lighter, it can be difficult.
  • To create depth or contrast, include different color values from light, medium to dark.
