Learn the easiest way: how to paint holly leaves with watercolors.

How to paint holly leaves + scan & cleaning your watercolor paintings

Hello flowers!

This week I’m coming with a series of tutorials.

My original plan was to teach how to paint holly leaves with watercolors, but I received a couple of comments asking me how to clean and prepare the files too, so I decided to do a series of video tutorials and guide you through all my process.

First, let’s start with the main tutorial this week: How to paint holly leaves with watercolors for this Christmas season.

In this video tutorial I’m teaching how I paint without previously drawing. It may sound scary at the beginning but for me is the best way to express myself and my feelings through the paintings. If we draw we will get into too many details and try to be so perfect and realistic that we will end up seeing more mistakes than anything else.

It’s also a perfect technique for beginners. Just leave your brush flow free and follow your instincts on how to mix the colors!

Ready? Here you have the first tutorial to learn how to paint holly leaves with watercolors:

In the video I showed you the colors I’m using, but if you want me to send you the full list of my favorite materials to paint with watercolors, you can leave your info below and I’ll email you the details 🙂

Continuing with this week tutorials, I told you I received several comments asking about scanning and cleaning watercolor paintings.

Here you can see some of the comments where you have been asking me how to scan or clean your own paintings:

I really love opening my email and receiving notifications from Youtube saying that some of you have written me a comment! You really can't imagine how happy I am for every single one of your comments, so please keep sharing your thoughts and asking any questions you have :)

That’s why the second tutorial I want to share with you today is called How to scan your watercolor paintings. I’m also sharing with you the scanner I’m using, which you can find on the list of my favorite materials for watercolor painting here.

Finally, here we go with the last tutorial: How to clean your watercolor paintings with Photoshop and delete the background paper:

Next week I’ll teach you how to design a Christmas box to wrap your gifts or pack your orders in case you have an online shop.

We will be using one of my patterns, but since my most popular youtube video tutorial is the one where I teach how to design your own seamless pattern, I think is a good idea to share it here with you and invite you to create your own holly pattern.

Save your Christmas pattern to your computer so that we can use it together next week!

Remember that I’ve prepared a list of all the tools and materials I use when I paint with watercolors.
If you want to use the same exact materials I’m using, this is your cheatsheet:
