Watercolour paints

You tube tutorials and FaceTime chats

I decided to invite one of my daughter’s friends to join Maya and I on a painting day by joining us virtually on FaceTime and watching the same you tube video at the same time. It took some technical shenanigans but we got there and a couple of weeks ago painted flamingos using this YouTube tutorial.

Here is my finished piece…

This was fun to paint and more importantly good to chat with the girls and then hearing them continue chatting after the painting session!

This week we tried it again… this time the theme is butterflies and this was the tutorial.

The tutorial doesnt include splatters for this but I couldn’t help myself!

Our set up for painting is a little squished… L on FaceTime on the phone, iPad showing the you tube video to me and M, L has the you tube on a phone too. We have to pause at the same time to keep in sync and we listen to the audio from L’s end!

Not sure what the plan is for next week …. Will have to find another suitable painting for us to try!

Happy crafting!
