I made this tutorial years ago so the pictures aren´t that great but I hope you´ll enjoy it anyway.
Tale As Old As Time
If you are as big of a fan of Disney's Beauty and the Beast as I am, you are going to love this tutorial. Whether you are having a birthday party to plan or just want to decorate your room with this theme, this eye-catching centrepiece is perfect for you!
What You´ll Need
1. Cut the Roses
Cut your roses so that they fit inside the glasses. You can also snip some of the leaves if they take up too much space.
2. Add Embellishments
Add golden embellishments inside the glasses. I added some golden pearls and decorations I had from old Christmas decorations. Be creative and use your imagination!
3. Add Water
Pour water into the glasses until the roses are covered. I love seeing the effect of doing this, as the water makes the embellishments and flowers look larger than they really are.
4. Place Candles Inside
Add floating candles into each glass and light them up. Your Beauty and the Beastcenterpiece is now complete!
Do You Like Princess Jasmine?
I am very excited about the new live-action version of Aladdin. The 1993 Disney animation was one of my childhood favorite movies, and I always admired the brave and beautiful Princess Jasmine.
What You´ll Need
1.Make The Sketch
First, I did the initial sketch. I used the scene where Jasmine enters the marketplace as a reference.
2. Add The Background Color
Paint the background with burned umber. I mixed the color myself using cadmium yellow, sinoper red, and a little bit of Prussian blue.
Watercolor Painting Tip
When you paint with watercolors, it is recommended to start with the lighter colors and then move on to the darker ones.
3. Mix The Skin Color
Jasmine has a beautiful olive-colored skin complexion. Unfortunately, my camera didnt manage to capture it very well. To match it, I mixed yellow, red, brown, and white. Because Jasmine is an animated character, I can´t play too much with the shadows of the skin. Instead, I painted the skin to look smooth like in the animation. Then, I painted her beautiful dark-brown eyes.
4. Work On The Veil And The Earrings
Her veil is ochre yellow. To make the color, mix browns and different shades of yellow together.
To paint the golden earrings, use the same ochre color but just add hints of orange and red to it.
5. Paint The Lips, Hair and Makeup
Paint her lips with sinoper red, and use a mixture of black and dark brown for her hair and makeup. To make the skin look softer, use a lighter shade of brown to paint the lines.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and have a great time exploring the world of watercolors!
