Houses and Hideaways - a Sketchbook Challenge

The sketchbook challenge is hosting a very exciting 21 day blog hop event to celebrate this months Houses and Hideaways theme!  
Welcome to my hideaway!  It is of course my studio that is located above our garage.  It is a great big room filled with light and color and was featured in the summer issue of Studios Magazine.

Follow along in this short video as I paint a field of sunflowers in my watercolor art journal.  Here is a list of the paints and supplies I use to paint this scene in my watercolor journal.  All of these supplies are included in my Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor Jacqueline Newbold Travel Kit available for purchase at Daniel Smith Art Supplies.

FUN, FUN watching you paint the sunflower scene. I see that you paint the flowers using negative painting. I never realized that about your sunflowers. This was a good lesson--though very speedy! :) Love your paintings, Paula
