Hello dear friends and artists!
Today is my birthday and I wanted to celebrate it with this gift to you, a little free tutorial for you to enjoy! You don’t need much supplies, or time on your hands, just an hour of your day to get some creative time in! With this never ending winter, and currently sick with the flu, I felt like creating something to welcome spring so here it is..
(These are the supplies I used but feel free to use what you have on hand!)
- hot-press watercolor paper
- pencil & eraser
- a few watercolors (I used the JD set of brights) & paintbrushes
- a straw and some napkins
- a black carbon pen with a fine nib & white gel pen
- black acrylic ink with a dip pen
- a playful spirit ;-P
Lets kick of this new year with some art!
Thank you so much for all your appreciation, support and encouragement in 2017. It has been an amazing year!
As a special thanks I have created this FREE WATERCOLOR TUTORIAL!
These are the supplies I used but please feel free to use what you have!
- Watercolor paper (cold pressed)
- A few watercolors ( I used Daniel Smith Quincridone Rose, Moonglow, Mayan blue, Opera Pink, Rich green gold, Amethyst Genuine, Piemontite genuine, Nickel Azo Yellow) But please use the colors you love or have!
- Watercolor paintbrushes (I used a medium 8, a large 12 and a small 2, but as long as you have a fine liner and a larger one for bigger areas then you’re good to go!)

- A palette to mix the colors

One November morning something very rare happened…it snowed! In Italy!! And this crazy, fun morning with my boys inspired a painting… Watch how it came together…
“PAINT MY WORLD”
Enjoy this time-lapse video on how I created my latest painting “The fire that burns within”..
I really had no idea where this was going while I painted, it was a very intuitive process. I believe that when we just let go and trust the process, baring our soul in the process, something wonderful happens… I hope it inspired you and gets those creative juices flowing! xox
Enjoy this time-lapse video of how I created one of my watercolor story-paintings called “TRUST” 🙂

I’ve been busy planning my upcoming class lately and I know some of you can’t wait to hear more!
But as there will still some time before it opens, I wanted to get you inspired and maybe have a little taste of what one of the lessons might be like!
I tried to stay loose and just have fun with the process, not really planning anything before I started so that I could work entirely from intuition and just…..
I hope you enjoy!! 🙂
BETWEEN TWO WORLDS
When we catch a brief glimpse
Of an unearthly light
Or we have that strange sensation
Of wise and watchful eyes…
It’s that deep warm feeling
Or maybe a shiver of delight
When angels are nearby
And our two worlds collide.
Enjoy this short free video on how I created her!
As I stand in the full moon’s light
I breathe in her energy, nurturing the night.
She fills me with her magical spell,
Awakening a thirst for freedom and flight.…
Freedom to be, and to discover
That side of me often kept hidden.
She melts away my insecurities
With the hope of New beginnings.
She fills my heart to overflowing,
My soul slowly healing and transforming.
I stand in full moon’s light
Igniting my hopes as my dreams take flight.
Enjoy watching how she takes form in this see video 🙂
This was my first video ever to be created, watch how this fairy was made.
