DIY Watercolor Christmas

Easy painting ideas and techniques for cards, gifts and décor

I am very happy to announce that my first solo book, DIY Watercolor Christmas will officially be on the shops from July 2021 by publisher David & Charles.

I had so much fun creating this book for all the watercolor and Christmas aficionados. It is a guide to painting through the festive season, but also to learn some of my favorite techniques.

The book covers the materials and equipment you need for watercolor painting –from paints and brushes to paper and other materials such as masking fluid and watercolor ground. You'll then learn how to create both traditional and contemporary color palettes for Christmas, and discover a wide range of watercolor techniques including washes, layering, blending and gradation, plus experimental ideas to try such as using salt and soap in your work.

This inspirational book will also show you how to use these exciting new products to paint onto glass baubles, 3D cardboard letters, wooden tree ornaments and more.
