Easy Watercolor Project (with Black Light, too!), Pt. 1

With Easter coming on April 1st, I thought that you might enjoy putting some of your watercolor skills into practice on a special project that will combine watercolor and black light. So, I’m going to show you how to do a picture similar to the Cross Hill picture that we did a while back. However, in this one, you’ll do one large cross rather than three small ones. This picture will also give you the chance to learn some new watercolor techniques: masking and glazing. 

So get out your watercolors and paper, and let’s have some fun.

  3. Your blue butterfly is Beautiful can i use it in an schoolproject?

    • Hi Linnea,

      Yes, you may use it for a school project. All I ask is that somewhere you include the notification, (c)Copyright 2014, James Pence. Used by permission.

      And, I’d really like to see a photo of your project when you’re done. I might even want to post it here and/or on the See the Light Facebook page.

      Thank you for asking!

  4. May I use your videos in a co-op class if I display your copywrite information?
