To make acrylic paints look like watercolors, you only need a little bit of paint. I use clean water and add it to the paint until it is pretty thin. You can choose how transparent to make your paint.
I start with one color and start painting in like a coloring book! Don’t worry too much about staying inside the lines, this is a loose and free painting style. I even paint in extra color and go in after the paint is dry to sketch around it.
My goal this year is to bring you all as much joy as I can through painting. As a reminder to myself I wanted to add my word of the year to this painting, I first lightly sketch a cursive JOY with a pencil. Then, trace over with the waterproof pen or a sharpie. I made all my downstrokes thicker and filled them in.
