When you’re first starting out with watercolor, or even if you’re a more experienced artist stuck and in need of inspiration, playing around with simple painting ideas can be loads of fun!

That’s my main message—play! In this tutorial I show give you three things to try: an easy wet-on-wet abstract, an easy flower bouquet, and a sunset landscape. Each of these use different watercolor techniques and brush strokes, too, so it’s great practice!

And if you want to go more in depth with watercolor techniques, check out my Complete Beginner’s Guide to Watercolor!
