  • Jump right in and start sketching the head shape for your project. Lindee shows you how to easily cut the shape from medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and sand it smooth so it's ready for paint.
  • April showers bring... May watercolor flowers! This project is a win for any artist, no matter where you are on your watercolor journey. And it's a great way to build your skills in manipulating tints and shades. (Believe it or not, this gorgeous composition only requires four basic colors!)

  • Let's face it: not all of us have been blessed with green thumbs. But when you can create your own garden with some rocks and a few coats of paint, who needs the real deal? These arrangements are crazy cute, and (bonus!) won't prick you.
  • 'Tis the season to wear all the sweaters, eat all the carbs and remember just how stunning a winter landscape can be. So whip out those watercolor paints. When you're done with the fun and easy project below, you'll have a pine forest worthy of a wintry reverie.

  • Finally, complete your third and final project: a bluebird on a flowering branch. You'll use the primary palette with the addition of burnt sienna.
