I love painting with watercolors. I paint flowers, sunsets and basically anything relatively easy! Painting quotes with watercolors is easy and also very relaxing. Quotes brighten my day and help me stay positive. The combination of relaxation and positivity makes me want to watercolor!! There are a few things you have to keep in mind while painting with watercolors especially something as intricate as words. Because if you make a mistake or add too much water you might not be able to read your quote!
Always keep in mind space and color. You want to make sure your color choices correspond with each other. Also make sure to have enough space laid out for your quote and evenly space out your words. You probably already know this but you’d be surprised how many quotes I’ve messed up because of spacing!
I like to paint my quotes in watercolors but I also like to paint sloppily, let it dry, then with a pen write a quote over it. If you are having trouble picturing it here is a step by step guide:

Lots of love
