1. Download the original photo: http://bit.ly/2kEtm90

Here are the videos:

 
 

The Kew Book of Botanical Illustration by Christabel King

The Kew Book of Botanical Illustration by Christabel King is a great book for all of those who are interested in botanical art. It is available for example at Jackson's Art. Here is a quick flick through video I made to show you the contents.

Zentangle Mandala #4 - Greek Dream

Sometimes I try new things, not really connected with watercolors, although I try to add watercolors if possible. This time I drew a zentangle mandala with a greek theme. I added watercolor elements to it. I like this color combination: black with green and tourquoise.

Materials used in this video:
1. Sakura Pigma Micron Pens
2. Winsor&Newton watercolor paints (colors: Permanent Sap Green, Quinacridone Gold, Cobalt Turquoise Light, Winsor Green Blue Shade, Winsor Blue Green Shade, Gold Ochre)
3. A sheet of Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper, 140lb (300gsm)

Watercolor supplies - My brushes

In this video I'm showing you brushes which I use most frequently. Here is the list:
2. Winsor & Newton Artist Sable Brush One Stroke 1 Inch
3. Escoda Perla White Toray Synthetic brush #14
4. Winsor & Newton Pure Squirrel Mops
5. Winsor & Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Brushes
6. Winsor&Newton Artist Sable Brushes: Riggers

I have recently bought a new brush which is not included in this video. It's Escoda Reserva #10. I wasn't convinced to Escoda brushes earlier, but I wanted to give it a try. I decided to buy a bigger size (for me size 10 is a big size :) ) because I want to start painting bigger size paintings. This brush is excellent and I can recommend it as well.
