Advent Paint-A-Long 2019 – What you will need

Want a fun and relaxing way to countdown to Christmas? Join me with a tiny daily painting revealed each day December 1-25, 2019, and you will have gifted yourself a lovely finished painting by Christmas Day.

I will be painting 2 different options:

Classic Christmas
Festive Foliage

For either painting, you will need:

  • Square piece of watercolor paper; I would suggest approximately 9″ x 9″ or larger. I used this amazing paper to make it easy.
  • Your favorite brush; mine is a size 8 or 10 round.
  • 1, 2, 3 or more paint colors! I encourage you to use what you have. A monochromatic (one-color) painting is quite charming. If you want a range of colors, choose a red, yellow, and blue and play with them using my free guide below:

If you don’t already have a 5 x 5 grid of squares on your paper, you will need to make the outlines. Use your maths:)!

Now stay tuned here for each day’s reveal!
