How To Start Arting With Watercolor Pencils! – Tutorial

Hello Again! I hope you are well and enjoying the start of 2020!! Whooo
Today I would like to share with you a new tutorial video specially for those of you who want to start arting for the first time.

I started my art journey in 2012 when I bought a tin of watercolor pencils and a pad of paper, my creative outlets at that time were video, creating visuals for concerts and events as well as producing short videos for TV companies etc.

I wanted to expand my creative vocabulary and learn to paint and draw, watercolor pencils seemed the easiest way to start and I want to show how you too can start a colourful art journey with a handful of pencils and some paper.

Today we will be painting my Kudu antelope design which I have linked below the video.
Please feel free to save this and print it for colouring with watercolor pencils.

In the video I will show you how to get started.

If you would like to share your creations please feel free to join the facebook group here

and upload your first paintings! It’s soooo exciting!

On Friday I went ice skating for the very first time! It was at Somerset House in London with Dj’s and even a steel band!!
However I don’t think my body will every recover from the experience lol, lets say that I managed to ‘Skate’ by holding onto the rail and pulling myself along for the whole 1 hrs session… ummm I think I need more practice.

Anyhow..
