I wanted to try painting watercolors from tubes, so I went and snagged all of my mom’s watercolors and those of mine I left at her house.
Hers… say watercolor on one side and tempra on the other so I don’t know what, exactly, to think.
I pulled the whites because lead – also because I don’t use white in watercolor. None of the other tubes said they were toxic. I laid them out in a tray so I could let them harden and act more like pans. Just enough space!
And then it was watching YouTube videos and practicing types of strokes.
Florals are… deceptively hard. SO there’s a lot of stroke practice and no cohesive wholes yet.
But it’s fun to try!
