Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with an Albrecht Dürer® Watercolor Marker tutorial. Between Spring and Fall, my part of the world wakes up to the songs of many different birds. One of my favorites of these birds is the Eastern Bluebird and its cheerful chirp. In today’s tutorial, I am creating a postcard of an Eastern Bluebird using Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Markers.
Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with an on-the-go sketch inspiration using Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Markers and Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor Pencils. Recently, I traveled to California for an event. The Ritz-Carlton hotel at Dana Point had staircases leading straight down to the beach. Sometimes early in the morning or later in the afternoon, I climbed the stairs and sat on the sand and sketched things I found on the beach.

In this lesson plan, we combine the unique qualities of three types of pencils: Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor Pencils, Goldfaber Color Pencils, and Faber-Castell Graphite Pencils. These pencils combined, produce an impressive effect, and offer an ease of use that makes them fun, and mastered with a little practice. Inspired by the sight of the Woodpecker, I thought about what a good pencil drawing a bird could make.
Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with an Albrecht Dürer® Watercolor marker tutorial. I once found a feather in a book I bought at a thrift shop. I figured that the previous owner of the book might have used the feather as a bookmark.

Pitt Artist Pens are famous for their high quality odorless, permanent and waterproof India Ink. They come in a variety of nib types including a brush tip and produce stunning results on a variety of surfaces.

While my daughter is excited to ride the bus for the first time, she can't help but be a bit apprehensive about it. I am hoping this cute paper plate school bus craft will generate curiosity and excitement!
