    Ikey 201 1 day ago Thank you so much for sharing a much easier way to prep watercolor paper. I have not followed any previous instruction because it was more work than I cared to undertake. Now I feel confident to do a "wet on wet" painting -- thank you!! Also, let me say that your voice, the nice music, the speed of your videos, all together sums up a wonderful tutorial experience. This is the first or second video I have watched and look forward to going through all of them at some point. It's no surprise you have 957 comments!! Kudos :-)

  • Frankie Reed
    Frankie Reed 1 day ago I added my comment BEFORE I watched the doodling. I LOVE the doodling so much. I am self taught and have also made a bunch of bookmarks from “ failed” paintings but nothing to compare with yours. Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas!

  • Susan Handsom
    Susan Handsom 4 days ago Love this technique! As soon as I put my sewing machine up I'm breaking out the watercolors! Both ways are beautiful, the doodled ones look like the pen and ink style. For me, I like the undoodled ones better and I think you are of the same mind.
