a holiday- themed paint night

J and I love a good paint night.

I found this great holiday-themed watercolor tutorial online for (one of) our December “date-night-paint-nights” and not only did they both turn out so well, we completely enjoyed ourselves.

We cranked up the old holiday Spotify Christmas classics, watercolor paper, brushes, paint, and oil pastels, and voila! Magic in the making.

The tutorial came from here: Deep Space Sparkle, How to Draw a Christmas Car.
And I have started a Pinterest board of other tutorials we are planning on trying as well, this is our third project.

I love “experiential dates” anything where we can do something, so this was right up my alley- and we both enjoy art, so it’s perfect!

Hope you guys give it a go!

I love that we followed the same instructions, but got very different results.
Can you tell who did what?

Him and Her. Life and Narrative. Married, partnered, friends. Simple and sweet. The ups and downs together. Be kind, be caring, be loving. A theatre artist and a military officer. Living in Alaska, often long distance. We explore, we write, we share. We love to travel, eat, listen to music, try new things, be present each day, and live a minimal lifestyle.
