Zig Clean Watercolor Pens A wheel designed to achieve a three or four color blend at a glance.

Thank you for joining me today. I finally received my Zig Clear Watercolor Pens in the 60 pack. They are absolutely the ultimate watercolor pen on the market. I loved every minute of making these color wheels today. I wanted something that could help other's make blends at the first glance of a true color wheel. I came up with this unique wheel system to turn to any color, then get a mid tone, and a dark tone at a glance. I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making this wheel for you. I am going to proceed to make 3 others in the different color families for instant blending at a glance. I want to thank to 2 new subscriber's here this evening. I appreciate all 104 of you!!!

Acrylic Painting for Beginner Part 2 of 3

Welcome back to my second part of 3 video's trying to capture the photo that Bonnie sent me. I was using my new acrylic's! My sister's and I were going out for dinner, and I was short on time trying to get this finished for you. I worked on this with a migraine, so it was slowing my thinking down, making it more difficult to concentrate. I will finish it tomorrow when I'm feeling better. I came home early from our dinner to get some rest, and see if my migraine would settle down. It will come together tomorrow, after a good nights rest! Smiles
