Happy Friday, all! Today I have a fun video for you with 5 super simple and easy watercolor backgrounds! I also tried out the new Water Media Mat from Waffle Flower (available for preorder at Waffle Flower and Simon), and did all my watercolor painting with a single flat watercolor brush and some liquid watercolors from Dr. Ph. Martin’s (all colors are from the A Set of Radiant Concentrated Water Colors).
(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 used five colors of watercolor for my simple backgrounds: Alpine Rose, Orange, Lemon Yellow, Grass Green, and Turquoise Blue. These five colors would be a great start to any liquid watercolors collection. I love how bright and cheerful the colors are!
The new Water Media Mat worked out great for my painting today (especially with my DIY plastic tray over the wells), and there are SO many more things to be done with the mat! Be sure to check out Waffle Flower’s playlist of videos at YouTube for more ideas on how you can use the Water Media Mat (including techniques like mirror stamping).
