Watercolors are a wonderfully accessible paint. Sure, you can get super high-end, high-grade watercolors, but cheaper, entry-level sets are just as much fun, and easy for all ages to enjoy. On that note, have you taken a look at Creativebug yet? If you search for “watercolor,” you’ll find tons of fun instructional videos, prompts, and ideas. One I particularly liked was “Daily Painting Challenge: Flowers, Fruits and the Natural World,” taught by Carolyn Gavin. It’s a 31-day challenge, which means there’s a new prompt for every single day, along with a video to show you how you might paint that day’s subject. (Though nothing is stopping you from going at your own pace, be that faster or slower, which is really the beauty of it.)
