Since last year, I haven’t traveled really and been home (for the longest time ever – courtesy – the pandemic) But no regrets, as this gave me time to learn and indulge in a lot of new activities and learnings, some of which I’m still continuing. Gardening was one of them – I love how my little balcony garden turned out!

Another activity I resumed after a reaaalllly long time was watercolor painting. And I’m so glad I did – because I’m thoroughly enjoying it (and I think there’s satisfying progress too). Though I’m not getting as much time now, I still paint as and when I am able to do it now – and it truly is calming.

So, a while ago, I had doodled this botanical illustration, a very loose one, of some pretty hanging plants and planters. Check out the video below.


Most of my art supplies are inexpensive as I’m still learning. But also, I believe the tools don’t matter a lot as long as you enjoy the process and create something, anything that makes you feel good.

The art supplies I’ve for this plant doodle include the following:

  1. Student-grade watercolors – crimson, sap green, dark green, burnt sienna, yellow ochre, violet, and prussian blue and played a bit around with mixing a few of these to get different hues.
  2. Round brush (again, an inexpensive local brand but comfortable), use any size you are comfortable using, I’m using size 10.
  3. A5 sized spiral bound sketch pad with thick drawing papers (I think it is some 160-180 GSM, which is fairly thick for a light wash of watercolours).

It is a super easy doodle that anyone can create. Do give it a try, if you like it 🙂 for now, enjoy the video. Do follow my watercolor journey on the YouTube channel.
