Stretching Paper


You can stretch your paper to ensure perfectly flat results and easier painting when using watercolour. In this quick demonstration Linda shows you how.

You’ll need:

Watercolour paper
A drawing board (ours is just a piece of MDF from a hardware shop cut to the appropriate size)
Gummed paper strip (from art shops or online)
A tray larger than the paper

Approximate run time: 4 minutes

Painterly Landscape

In this video collection Linda demonstrates exactly how she uses a combination of acrylic paints and inks to create simple little landscapes on watercolour paper and box canvases before developing the same theme into fabric and thread. She produces several decorative, paintings and panels that would be perfect in your own home or would make great gifts. The videos include everything you need to know to create your own landscapes in a variety of formats.
