Well, you know how wild I am for watercolor, so I had a front row seat! Care to join me?
She is painting a scene not far from where I live - yummy sunset colors, huh!

Check out these great hints ~
|The artist's tools|
- She has a friend who saves her scraps of mat board. Aha!
- Linne uses these scraps of mat board to test her colors before she puts the paint on the paper.
- If you look closely, you can see that Linne has written the names of the colors on the sides of her palette. I have seen this hint before and it is a great one to use. No more confusion! Take a look at those lovely puddles of paint, too. That saves having to struggle to match the color exactly if you run out...
- My favorite hint? Linne uses a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to lift paint for corrections. I watched her do it. Amazing! I am all over this hint and the next trip to the store, guess what will be in my basket!
