Mountain Landscape Sympathy

I’ve been getting into more and more watercolouring lately. I took some classes about 20 years ago but I was never very good. 😉 But with it getting so popular and now that we have YouTube, it’s easier than ever to learn how to watercolour!

So I won’t pretend that this is a masterpiece but since I have no mountain stamps or dies and this week’s challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges was to make a card with a mountain on it, I had to figure something out! I followed a tutorial, step by step, until I had a decent panel. It’s my first try so I’m pretty happy with it. I used my new Silver Brush Company Silver Velvet brush and I can’t even describe how much I love it! It’s a size 8 but the tip is about the same as a size 1! Amazing right? It means that you don’t have to change brushes for some details. It also holds a TON of water! I had no idea how much easier it would be to paint with a brush that holds so much water! If you’ve been hesitating to buy one (or more!!), GO. NOW!!

Have some mountains? Come on over and play with our challenge at C4C!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
