Wet on wet watercolour

I’ve been admiring the gorgeous wet on wet watercolour paintings I’ve seen on many Waldorf inspired blogs lately. After watching a video on how to do it via a link shared on The Magic Onions, we gave it a go.

Master D thought it was quite amusing to put paper in the bath for a soak while we set up our paint 🙂

But he loved swirling the colours around and mixing them up – leading to new colours.

There was something quite calming about painting this way.

And, as I’m starting to do with each activity, I gave it a go too.

I think we could easily end up with walls full of these gorgeous paintings if I don’t restrain myself!

Warm wishes, Kelly
