My tip for getting the best results with this tutorial? Use real watercolor paper so the colors stay nice and bright, and if you use liquid watercolor paint, mix up a batch of the “Grinch” greenish yellow color for everyone to share. It’s not easy for young ones to mix the right shade if they have to add use trays with only a grassy green.
