Painting with Carol

Techniques, tips and tricks for watercolours and acrylics

Free pattern packet

May 26th, 2008 | Category: Carol's paintings, Pattern packets, Watercolours

watercolours-for-beginners-gum-blossoms.jpg

It has taken a while, but here is the promised free pattern packet of the gum blossoms watercolour. This is a beginner pattern so it’s a good starting point. There are two parts to the pattern packet:

  • The tracing. Download the file here. It’s currently A4 size, so you will need to enlarge it to A3 and print it out onto tracing paper. If your printer doesn’t do sizes larger than A4, take it to a print and copy centre such as Kinkos - they should be able to enlarge it and print it onto tracing paper.
  • A step-by-step instruction guide.

Both are PDF documents so you will need a reader such as Adobe Reader in order to view them.

I’m working on uploading a pattern packet of this design so that you can try it out for yourself. Stay tuned.

I’m back

November 08th, 2007 | Category: On the road, Watercolours, Workshops

I have just returned from a very successful painting tour of Victoria. I taught in Bendigo, Brewster, Geelong, Melbourne and Rosewood. It was the perfect time to go as all the spring and summer flowers are in full bloom - whatever did we do before digital cameras? I have posted some pictures on Flickr but I have also pasted them in here so you can find them easily.
