Paint Flowers With Watercolor

You’re a work of art.

There’s this quote that goes something like:

“She never looked nice.

She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice;

It was supposed to make you feel something.”

We feel that. We really feel that.

Creativity comes in many different forms. There’s the musician, the painter, the chef, the DIY-er, just to name a few…

And then there’s the people who claim they don’t have an artistic bone in their body. Well, we can’t sit back and accept that because art is a beautiful thing, in all its many forms. And as much as people believe art is for the artistically talented, art is for whoever’s looking to feel something.

So, we have just the thing to calm your mind and give you that little piece of creative freedom your life might be missing, and it’s called watercolor paint.

On a scale of one to relaxation, we rate this a must-do. You only need a few things:

  • A glass of water

  • Paint palette

  • Paint brushes

  • Paper, or the canvas of your choosing

And if you’re feeling it, a glass of wine… we’ve talked to many artists and 10/10 say wine helps get the creative juices flowing (just saying).

With summer around the corner, unwind & do your thing. You can watercolor paint in the park, on the beach, or on your porch… the world’s your canvas.

If you’re looking for a little inspo before you get started, check out Nan Rae who will make you want to pick up a brush and get painting immediately.

And, you must check out our favorite watercolor paintings below…  spoiler alert, they’re all flowers, hehe.

Inside tip: If you’re not feeling like free-handing, grab a coloring/painting book and get started on filling in the pre-drawn designs. Easy peasy.
