Start by lettering the word “Rainbow” using a rainbow of colors. Blend the colors softly with a paintbrush or water brush.

Add a quote under the Rainbow. Check out this previous post of mine for more List of Rainbow Quote.

Mask the four sides of the facing page. Using a masking tape in your sketchbooks helps protect the pages and gives a clean artistic look to the page.

Paint your rainbow raindrops.

Fill in the background with a light blue color. Leave a thin white outline around the raindrops to prevent the colors from blending. Don’t these watercolor raindrops look so pretty?

Supplies used
  • Sketchbook: Using the same Strathmore Mixed Media sketchbook that I have used before.
  • Watercolor markers: I’m using my Tombow Dual Brush Pens here because these are the best Watercolor Brush pens I’ve used. The color numbers used in today’s painting are 755, 885, 933, 985, 133, 173, 379, 403, 526, 685, 817, 772
  • Paintbrush or Water Brush: Any Round no 4 or no 6 paintbrush or a small water brush works great for this project.
  • Masking tape: The masking tape you choose will basically make or break your project. After multiple bad ones, I have finally found this paper tape that is slightly tacky and doesn’t rip the paper.

I love how this Watercolor Raindrops page turned out and it makes me smile each time I turn the page to it. What have you painted recently?
