Watercolor Succulent

watercolor succulent

A watercolor succulent makes easy and attractive wall art for your home.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have cool decorations.  The frame was purchased in a 3 pack for half off from a crafts store and watercolor paper and watercolor pencils are not expensive either.  I have used the same set of watercolor pencils for 12 years.  It is almost time for a few new ones.  I have my favorite colors and they are getting tiny.

The most expensive item I used in making the piece was a new paint pen for me.  A friend brought over her Posca Pens and after using hers I had to purchase my own because they are AMAZING! I ordered mine off of Amazon.  They work so well.  I had no problem stopping and starting.  Other paint pens don’t seem to work well after a few uses.  Not with this pen and the white was really white and solid.  I did not have to go over it multiple times for it to show up and now I want to purchase a full range of the pens.The content below may have been sponsored, contain affiliate links or free items for use.

Instructions to make Watercolor Succulent:how to watercolor

  1. Lightly draw your shape in pencil. Use sharpened watercolor pencils or even pastel pencils to color in the shapes you have drawn
  2. Use a water pen or paint brush dipped in water to smooth out the pencil lines inside the shape.  Start with a little water because too much and it will be uncontrollable.
  3. Once you have the piece colored in you can start adding the details. I started with the black and then added the white.  watercolor succulent 2

  5. If you think you need to add more watercolor or highlights you can do that when you use a paint pen and it generally will not change the color of the paint pen.
  6. Pick a frame, hang on your wall and enjoy!
