Watercolor Week: One-Color Challenge!

Welcome back to Watercolor Week! Today I challenged myself to watercolor a scene on a card using only one color of paint. I used the Animal Parade stamp set from Mama Elephant to build a fun scene to paint, and then use a nice blue color from the watercolor paints I showed in yesterday’s video.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I really loved this challenge! While it was definitely a challenge, I kind of liked limiting myself to only one color. It actually simplified a lot for me when it came to shading since I didn’t have to choose additional colors.

Thanks for stopping by today!
