Hahnemühle Post Cards, First Vlog, Mustard

Okay I’ve hung on to this long enough and need to get over it all.
I will share my first test teaching vlog with my fellow artist peeps.
It is about ink+ watercolor painting, shown on a Hahnemühle Post Card,
my middle-of-the-night go-to!  My foray into teaching begins!

*AAAACK squeaky high voice why can’t I have a low throaty sexy voice?
Lighting lighting get your lighting right!!!
Be quiet critic!
Glad I got all that out because I don’t want to apologize every time…*

Be kind, peeps.

    This was great, Katie! I like how you called them ‘happy accidents’ and again said ‘make it look like you meant it to happen.’ This is truly a little piece of art!

    katie, thank you for this video! watching you work brings the process down to what feels like a doable process. i definitely know now that my issues have been too much paint, not enough water, which probably stems from not using a sturdy enough paper. i hope you continue to make teaching videos. i found the lighting fine, i was able to see the details. while having a deep sexy throaty voice sounds like a lot of fun, i don’t know that you want it in a teaching video! i like your voice just fine the way it is. i liked how you told all the products and how you marked your pens and all the details you put in, along with the step by step. very good job and i look forward to more! xo


    • Thank you for feedback!
      My lighting has improved (this was one take, first one!
      Making washes — enough for what you want to do — is so important! And sometimes I get the paper wet before I start. xoxo


  3. really enjoyed this, as I’m just playing with watercolour – does that ink that you used actually have that intrinsic ability to separate out into constituent colours…

    Awesome! I hear you on the voice thing. By which I mean that I feel the same about my voice, but the thing is that your voice pleases me. So now I’m going to pretend that means that my voice pleases other people. 🙂 Thanks for that and for the tutorial!


  5. Thanks so much Kate for choosing to continue to use Hahnemühle post cards!


  6. that was fantastic Kate and it’s all YOUR fault that I have to buy a new ink now! Love that Foggy green, stupendous. You do not sound squeaky, your voice sounds lovely. I know what you mean though, when I hear my voice on tape I cringe. :o) (Oh, the link to my site is now NEW and finally LIVE! YAY! One problem, I’m having trouble typing and painting. I have an inner ear infection causing horrible vertigo and nausea. Damn, so much for getting stuff done. sigh.)


    • IF you can’t get it in CA I will get it and send it…
      Concerned — Mitchell does well with vertigo by seeing a acupuncturist. And keeping his inflammation down, which is nto the case if you havve an ear infection. Poor baby — so sorry!


  7. I liked this very much! I don’t think you have a squeaky voice at all! I

    I’m looking forward to your next video!
