Lettering: Thankful

"Thankful" is a seasonal tutorial by Vinita Pappas where you will learn how to create a stunning watercolor painting with lettering. Vinita will guide you through the process of making a methodical and detailed painting, starting with creating a sketch on newsprint, which you can transfer onto a clean piece of paper if needed. She will demonstrate how to use a combination of muted colors like fern, sienna, cerulean blue, cobalt, turquoise, and more to create a beautiful wash that sets the foundation for your painting. Vinita will show you how to add the lettering to your painting. She will share her techniques on how to fill in the letters with paint without painting too tightly. Next, she will demonstrate how to create the leaf shapes, using a green color that is darker than the wash but not as dark as the letters. The final result will be a beautiful wall-ready Thanksgiving-themed piece titled "Thankful". This painting can be used for a variety of purposes, from standalone artwork to a beautiful greeting card. With Vinita's guidance, you'll be able to create a watercolor masterpiece that will leave you feeling accomplished and grateful.
