Lesly and I travel a lot and change countries as often as every 3 months. So packing/unpacking, searching for a new apartment, settling in etc often kills a desire to create and I can procrastinate for a few days before picking up a brush again. Guilty!
We are currently in Thailand and surrounded by exotic nature. So much greenery around that I couldn’t stop myself from painting palms and leaves and sunsets. That’s why today we are painting this inspiring green palm leaf in watercolor together!
It is such an elegant flower that we could not miss it, besides one of our followers on Instagram mentioned it as an interesting topic to paint. And we listen to our followers
You can paint them on a student quality cellulose paper as well as on professional 100% cotton paper, you don’t need a whole range of colors, a limited palette will work just fine, and you don’t need to be a pro to create juicy and colorful watermelons.
