Day 1: 5-Day Spring Watercolor Card Challenge | Bird Nest Tutorial

Good Morning Friends,

I'm sure you've seen that Spring has started. The trees are starting to bud and green is taking over again (thank goodness).  

I wanted us to celebrate Spring in a new way this year.  I've decided to create a 5-Day Watercolor Card Challenge.

Each day, I will post a new watercolor card tutorial here, on my blog and over my Youtube channel.  You can also sign-up to receive a daily email lesson straight to your inbox (also by signing up you get access to the DAY-6 BONUS LESSON).

How can this challenge help your journey?  

  • Build a routine for daily painting.  

  • Spark your creativity for future projects.  

  • Learn new watercolor techniques to grow as an artist.


Here is the Challenge for Day 1 - today we will paint a simple birds nest.  I love painting birds nests and it's the first thing I think of when it comes to Spring.
