Hello friends! I’m sharing another quote art page, this time with watercolor raindrops that are super colorful! I simply love how this turned out and hope this tutorial inspires you!
This is another tutorial in my Rainbow Art series 🙂
On my Instagram handle @smithakatti, I’m creating 100 Rainbows this season- I hope to see you there!
Watercolor Raindrops + Quote VIDEO:
I just uploaded a NEW YouTube video that walks you through, step by step the creation of this Rainbow Quote. Click the video box below or head here to watch it on Youtube.
Start by lettering the word “Rainbow” using a rainbow of colors. Blend the colors softly with a paintbrush or waterbrush.
Add a quote under the Rainbow. Check out this previous post of mine for more Rainbow Quote prompts.
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?

- Sketchbook: Using the same Strathmore Mixed Media sketchbook that I have used before. Check out more of my pages from this sketchbook here.
- Watercolor pens: 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.
Hi I’m Smitha! I live in Minnesota with my husband and two daughters. You’ll always find me painting florals in my sketchbook. And I love the sheer joy of making something with just my hands! But my bigger love is capturing it all on camera Read more.
