Peerless Watercolors

This morning the first thing I did when I woke up was read my email....pretty sad when you can do that without even lifting your head off the pillow!

One of the emails mentioned how Jill Davenport makes a pallet with her Peerless Watercolors.  Hummm....YEARS and YEARS ago I bought some Peerless Watercolors and never really used them because I didn't want to "run out".  SICK!  But you can see from the price why!


Thing is, I bought them before YouTube existed so there wasn't anyone telling me that they would last forever, even with use!  Click HERE to see the video I watched.

After watching the video I decided to get my lazy self up and find mine and do something with them. Here you go:

I have to admit, I surprised myself with this one...well, I actually surprise myself with everything I draw because I have spent my whole life thinking I can't ... but apparently, with God's help, I can.

This literally took about 5 minutes to do. Sorry, can't explain the green hair except all the painted girls I see out on the web are ALL KINDS of colors!  So, why not green right?  And, I did it using only 4 peerless watercolors + a black pen, and one color pencil for the irises of her eyes (not sure why ???)

AND everything was done sitting right here on my sofa.... watch video, paint, take picture, blog, done!  That's why my little logo has the white box, I haven't loaded the .png file onto the web yet to pull into the iPad.  I LOVE THIS iPad!!!

As always, I saw the flaws better once uploaded to the blog so I worked on it some more by giving her eye makeup.  Mainly because the left eye looked weird... Now she almost looks like a different girl.  Left eye is still kinda weird but I'm afraid to mess with it anymore, watercolor makes me nervous to putz with too much.


  1. I thought I'd let you know that you aren't the only one who has purchased the Peerless watercolors and then not used them. Not only didn't I want to use them up, I didn't want them to look messy. How stupid is that. I hereby resolve to use my Peerless watercolors. Not that I'll use them as well as you have. Think I'll go watch the YouTube video first. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Alyce!
      I AM glad to hear that I'm not the only one! Honestly, I enjoy the having and getting of stuff as much, or more, than the actual using of stuff. :-) Anytime I start a new "thing" I want ALL THE COLORS that it takes to make the thing....once I have all of them I'm ready to move to the next thing. It all started back with x-stitching...yup, bought all the DMC colors, probably made 3 things total. Head hanging in shame.

      I do love how she cut a piece off each piece so that way there is still more that goes untouched. :-)
