LIVE Replay: Learn the Basics of Watercolor!

Hello! I wanted to share with you a LIVE replay from last week, where Jen Rzasa of Altenew showed me the easy basics of watercolor. I found it so helpful! (Because this was a “teaching” video, there will not be a shortened video available.)

  1. Hi, Jennifer. I’ve been watching the reply in spurts since your email yesterday. You know. . . a few minutes here, fast forward a little then a few more minutes. Live videos make me crazy! Just too much time. But I REALLY like the watercoloring! It always fascinates me and I want to learn, but like you, I’m intimidated. I have MANY watercolor supplies from Altenew (watercolor in pans, watercolor pencils, watercolor brush markers, paper, brushes. . .. .) and my favorite watercolor artist from Altenew is Erum Tasnim. Haven’t seen much from her there for a bit– I think she’s growing on her own with art and business. Her videos are direct and very educational and mostly under 12 minutes! She does beautiful work. Check her out! Thanks!

  2. Hey! Me again. Also thought of another great watercolor demonstrator- Jill Foster (often demonstrates Penny Black). She shows her own method of creating lovely watercolor on stamped images. Thought most of the products used are from Penny Black, she uses many reinkers as “paint” (often Tim Holtz) and sometimes watercolor pans. Her techniques could be used on any stamp, if you really would like to learn just for yourself.
    Thanks again, Laura

  3. Hey Jennifer! Great video! I’m trying to learn to watercolor and I loved this tutorial.
    Just FYI…I purchased the Altenew pan set of watercolors several years ago. I love them! HOWEVER, apparently Altenew does NOT sell the replacement pans! This is very frustrating! I’ve run out of several of the colors and now I’m unable to use them. So, that’s something to think about before purchasing.
    Thank you again for all you do!

  4. I noticed that you used the Altenew Stamp Wheel in this video. I have been watching YouTube about this product, but would very much like to see you create a tutorial using all the tips and suggestions that you have discovered for this tool. Your help with this would be tremendously appreciated. I very much enjoy your videos. Thank you for all your hard work.
