So You Wanna Paint with Watercolours | 6 Online Tutorials to Try

Beginner Online Watercolour Painting Tutorials | Currently Well

I love anything that involves creativity. When I was younger, I always had scrap pieces of paper lying around with doodles. I wanted to take on a new hobby and decided to buy myself a sketchbook and cheap paint set. I want to eventually fill up a sketchbook with paintings and artwork. It’s also a great a hobby to revert to when stressed, bored, or just need a distraction to take your mind off, sans computer screen.

I find the the watery, washed-out look of watercolours so beautiful. Only I find my perfectionist tendencies surface when the colours don’t seem to flow in the way I want them to. Trying to build up a skill without attending a class is hard. Here are a few tutorials that have helped me get started.
