In this step-by-step watercolor tutorial, I will teach you how to paint a world map for Earth Day! And if you're watching this any other day of the year, we can always be celebrating earth since it is the beautiful place we all call home.

And since there are a lot of details in this painting that requires patience, you'll hear some good ole' Jenna and John banter about the wonderful places we've been very fortunate to visit. So grab your brushes and come paint with us!
