Painting is a great way to relieve stress and lower your blood pressure, among other health benefits.

Gather your own watercolor supplies

Join me while I paint my “Red Cardinal” piece and share my step by step process.

I will guide you through painting my cardinal in watercolor. The cardinal is thought to be a symbol of a loved one visiting us from the other side.

Every time I see one I think of my Grandpa Calvin. A simple sketch is included here for your reference.

Enjoy discovering more about this specimen and have fun with watercolor!

I can’t wait until your next one ! – kristin
