Using your preferred colour mix brush paint across the paper in horizontal brush strokes - you can layer different colours as you go up the paper.

It could look quite striking if framed.
I was going to make something vet similar today but couldn't find any masking tape. Did a watercolour candle card instead
What a coincidence! I do like this one - it was Josie's idea and all her own work. I think maybe a younger child might need a bit more help. I'm think you could also adapt it a bit so it has grass and sky.
