I really should’ve known better.
It didn’t hit me until I started watching YouTube videos for watercolors.
Not everyone knows how to draw.
I can spend (waste) hours watching watercolorists on YouTube. It’s mesmerizing to me. However the pattern is already drawn when they start to paint. That’s why I didn’t think anything about it. I draw my own sketch first too. Then I noticed how in almost every video the artist would tell you where you could get the pattern.
Ever since my ecourse How To Paint Tulips launched, I’ve been sketching flower after flower so I can build a video library of how to paint them. I started going back thru my blog’s early years when I did more tutorials and read comments where people would use the patterns not just for painting, but also for homeschooling or quilting or things I never dreamt of.
But here’s something I have been dreaming of for the past 20+ years – I’ve wanted to create patterns that are interchangeable. Mix ‘n match, you know?
For instance, you might want to mix tulips and daffodils and put them in a vase, then maybe tulips and roses and put them in a basket.
Does that make sense?
To start with, I’ll offer single flowers as freebies as I get them drawn. Then I’ll offer various arrangements and containers in my shop so you can pick and choose what YOU want to create.
And, of course, I’ll be doing videos on how to paint the flowers.
Yes, I’m firing on all cylinders again. Woot!
To download the pattern click on either the sketch or the title and you’ll get a full size PDF pattern.
