Hello, Watercolor!

Creative Techniques and Inspiring Projects for the Beginning Artist

by Jeannie Dickson



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Instagram star Jeannie Dickson has created a modern and inviting introduction to watercolor painting that aspiring artists will turn to again and again on their creative journey.
Hello, Watercolor! offers a fresh approach to painting watercolors with concise and accessible information. Aspiring artists and journalers will immediately be able to apply the techniques they learn on these pages—including brush lettering—to more than 15 exciting step-by-step projects, from painting origami animals, sparkling glass shards, and beautiful alphabets to producing luscious florals and fanciful unicorns. Among the features that make this handbook both a valuable learning tool and source of inspiration:
  • Projects include a list of techniques with cross-references
  • Each project includes watercolors used with swatches so readers can make substitutions easily
  • Popular color palettes and color “recipes” for foolproof mixing
  • 12 monthly challenges with daily or weekly prompts to inspire painting all year long
  • Templates to trace and paint for some projects
  • Ideas to share work and connect with others (e.g., Instagram)

Jeannie Dickson is a creative entrepreneur, freelance artist, and digital content creator. On her popular Instagram account @jeanniedicksondesigns—with 276,000 followers—she’s become known for her modern watercolor techniques and unique lettering style. In February 2019, Silver Brush Limited, a manufacturer of high-quality artist's brushes, chose Jeannie as the Artist of the Month.
