I’m often asked about water brushes and want to share some of my techniques for using them! This is a Pentel Medium Tip, which I include in all Art Toolkits. To get started, I always like to squeeze out a little water to prime the brush for painting. Next, I mix colors, either experimenting with them on my palette lid or directly on my paper. In between colors, I’ll wipe my brush on a paper towel to keep my colors from getting muddy. This is my favorite blue shop towel—they are super durable and can be rinsed and reused. Finally, if I need to clean my mixing surface, I dampen it with my brush and wipe it clean with a towel.
Those are some of my water brush tips! Please let me know if you have any questions and happy painting!

Lucid watercolor discussions are my favorite way of connecting with other artists. Here are some swatches and samples commissioned by a very talented woman and friend. 🎨
Oftentimes the colors and harmony we seek can be created through simple mixing and the interplay of color, light, perception and energetic balance.
Yes I believe that there is an integral element to natural watercolors that few speak of or reveal. It is a topic I mull over often and have witnessed in the beauty and spirit displayed through the artwork our customers have shared with our artisan paints. I’m thinking of ways to engage in this conversation with those who may be interested. Let me know in our Instagram stories today or leave a comment below if this is a dialogue that interests you. ✨ #wildthorne#handmadewatercolors#watercolorswatches
Day 18 - My Space... No not the out dated social media site, my craft space, which has been getting some use over the Easter holidays. Here's my first ever watercolour page that I did 3 years ago xx . #mrsbrimblesaprildaily2019#mrsbrimblesaprildaily
We are simply blown away every time we take a step back and consider every friend, client & follower over our social media platforms. Today we’d like to say, “Thank You!” Without your support, feedback and loving interaction with us we could not have grown the leaps and bounds we have. It is truly our privilege and we look forward to continue being of service!
Guys. I'm parting with all of my vintage art supplies. 🌈 They're gorgeous, but I never found a good place to display them and just haven't had the time to use them. I'll be listing them in lots (or one big collection?) on the website eventually, but I wanted to give first dibs here if anyone's interested. 😊 Most items are totally useable (pencils, pastels, etc.) while a few items may be slightly too far gone (paint and crayons, perhaps). If you're interested in the lot, just send me a message!

Each of Taelor’s series focuses on the idea and use of the flower. Previous to this body of work, Taelor explored the act of taking apart and piecing back together arrangements of flowers to inspire new variations and compositions.⠀
In an effort to explore another purpose of the flower, Taelor has taken an interest in the movement of falling petals. Falling petals have diverse purposes. They can symbolize a celebration or the changing of seasons.. They can represent the passing of time or even something forgotten.⠀
Each painting was inspired by a once full arrangement of flowers. They were then taken apart and tossed in order to investigate a new view of floral motion. (“Falling I”, 60x54, Gallery Wrap Canvas) #taelorfisherpainting
