Opera Pink watercolor play

Hey everyone! I’ve been rediscovering some favorite colors and I have a process video to share as well.


Oh and before we get into this – I have exciting news!! I have a new online class up now. It will begin September 19th. Want details and registration info? click here!

Back to today’s coloring session – I am deep in love with Opera Pink by Daniel Smith. It is the pinkest pink – I love that bold color and it is not easy to find in watercolors! For this I used a large stamp (I’ve had it a long time – sorry can’t find any online source!) to begin my play. My favorite way to finish a piece like this? Splatter with watery color once dry. It adds a layer of color and “messy” funk that I just love.


Here’s a link to my YouTube video if you’d like to see my coloring process and see how this comes together.  DSC_6835

I really do love it, and I’m happy to rediscover some favorites and play with color. This style of watercolor is so forgiving, but also so fun since it never turns out the same twice!

Looking for this color? Here’s an (affiliate) link to the Opera Pink – oh how I love this color!
