If you’re looking for watercolor painting tutorials, look no further. Now that I’ve been getting back into watercolor, I’ve become a huge fan of DearAnnArt on Instagram.

Anna paints absolutely gorgeous watercolor art. Not only that, but she does some of the best simple watercolor tutorials.

I’ve included some of her tutorials throughout my watercolor posts. You can check them out below:

Recently though, I thought it would be great to feature my favorite watercolor tutorials from Anna.

Before we get into the tutorials, Anna has a great book that shows you how to create watercolor paintings easily. The book is called 15-Minute Watercolor Masterpieces. It can be found on Amazon and I highly recommend it!
