15 lovely watercolor-ers to follow on instagram

Instagram. The place where I keep up with family and friends, fellow bloggers, get fashion inspiration, drool over gorgeous homes and darling babies and admire talented photographers.

Also, the place where I’m consistently in awe of lovely watercolor artists and their work.

I follow quite a few artists on Instagram. Each one has her unique style and receives lots of double-taps from me.

If you love pretty watercolor, illustrations, flowers, beautifully styled photos and even a few in-process videos (which I watch on repeat), you’ll want to follow these 15 watercolor-ers on instagram.

Here are a handful of my favorites, in no particular order.

Aren’t those just wonderful?! Every single one. And these are just tiny samples of the rest of the goodness you will find on their feeds. All are must-follows, in my humble opinion.

Do you follow any watercolor artists on Instagram that I missed? I’d love to hear your favorites!

Speaking of watercolor …

Did you hear that I now offer an online watercolor course?!

You’ll learn the tools and technique to create pretty artwork with watercolor. This class is for all levels and ages!
