Whether it's inside your home or on your front door, who loves wreaths in winter? 🤚 I love 'em which is probably why I paint a winter watercolor wreath every year (2019 simple wreath, 2020 Christmas wreath). This year, I'm switching up the vibe completely—from a bright red and green to a cool contemporary smoky vibe.

As you may or may not know, this was the year Jenna's paint palette welcomed a new friend—white gouache—like in this tropical flowers tutorial. White gouache is an amazing way to give watercolors that opaque look with milky blues and dusty pinks. So that's what we're doing in this wreath!

I also walk you through how I come up with and mix a custom contemporary color palette that will last throughout the season.

Let's get painting!
