How to make an easy watercolor autumn decoration

Last week was the official start of autumn, but you wouldn’t be able to tell from the art in my room: some hyacinth paintings I made back in the spring of 2015. I thought of changing them in accordance with the season many times, but who has the time for room decorations! Well, now I finally found some time and I want to show you how you can make some for yourself too.

I believe the little paintings I made for my room are really simple and anyone with the basic skills to handle watercolor, brush and pen can pull it off. For the purpose of making these decorations there’s no need for expensive art supplies either, but I am using the best quality supplies I have nevertheless. I guess I just love the feel of them more.

So if you like throwing some paint on paper this is for you! Even if you don’t go all the way and add the pen sketch on top of the watercolor basis, you’ll still have an awesome piece of abstract art to hang on your wall. Just ask this red- yellow blot that was sitting on my shelf for at least 3 years now!
