From a technical point of view, learning to use watercolor is simple: add water to the paint, put brush on paper, and you're painting. These 6 watercolor painting tips will help you avoid basic mistakes and get better results right from the start with your flowers.
1. the petal closest to your body (in front) will always be lighter than the one behind him
2. divide the petal in two and paint separately to get the crisp clear line in the middle
3. use blue and brown for shadows
4. don't let wet paint touch it will flow into each other
5. use the tippy of your brush to make the spots in the same direction
6. always start with a light color, as light as you can so you can layer more color to go darker on top
Ever since I can remember I loved the smell of fresh baked goods. I (sometimes) love to bake.
This morning called for Banana bread. It was so yummy.
I will share the recipe. This recipe actually contains no sugar. It is sweet enough.
3/4 c. mashed bananas
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 lg. eggs
1/2 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. chopped nuts
Beat together mashed banana, oil, eggs and water until creamy. Add vanilla, flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices. Beat well. Stir in nuts.
Spoon batter into greased loaf pan I like to use the Disposable Aluminum Foil Loaf Pan (find them here)
Spread batter evenly.
Bake at 325°F for 45 min - 1 hour or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Cool completely on wire rack before slicing... we couldn't, we ate it warm with some honey.
