Get to Know Your Watercolors: Paint a Colorful Mixing Chart

Welcome to class! Let's paint a colorful watercolor mixing chart together!  

In this beginner to intermediate class, we will get to know our watercolor paints by creating a fun and easy watercolor mixing chart. :) I'll be with you every step of the way, as we draw, paint, and explore our colors. 

First, we will discuss a bit about WHY - Why paint a mixing chart?

Next, I'll show you how I set up a mixing chart, and give you all the details!

Once we've drawn our chart, we are on to painting! Starting with our pure colors and continuing with our mixes, we'll fill out the grid of our chart.  

I will walk you through the entire process, real time, and share my thoughts, tips, and tricks along the way. I may just throw in a bonus lesson or two to keep those creative juices flowing!!

So, I hope you will join me and explore watercolor together!

And, almost like magic, our watercolor skills will grow!

Happy Painting,


The course project

For your project, paint a watercolor mixing chart!!

You can follow along and paint with me, as I fill in my chart, or you can explore your own way! Feel free to use any paints you choose. If using five colors seems a bit much, please try it with three.

Please share your project in the project section. And, don't hesitate to ask, if you have questions. I'll do my best to answer.  

If you enjoyed this class, please leave a review and let others know if this class is for them!  

Thanks so much!! I look forward to seeing your projects.

Happy Painting,


P. S. If you post your project on Instagram, I would love for you to tag me!
