Proper Printing to Watercolor
In order to use watercolor paints you will need to use thicker paper. Ideally a watercolor paper, but I used 80 lb cardstock for mine because that’s what I had on hand.
I like to buy loose-leaf watercolor paper for this exact purpose, however. My printer can handle thicker paper so I don’t need to hand-feed it, test yours to see. And if you don’t have a printer you can have these printed at your local UPS store or another print shop on cardstock!
Step Two – Cut and Paint
It really is that simple. Watercoloring is probably one of the most simple paints to work with and the point is kind of messy so imperfections work well!
Just wet your brush and get some paint and start your piece of art.
You can also let it dry and come back in with darker colors on top, or other colors on top. A fun variation might be to use watercolor pencils and then come in and blend.
As you start coloring these pages, take some time to appreciate the work of the natural scientist, Helen Beatrix Potter, who not only wrote children’s books but also created beautiful illustrations of animals and nature. Her legacy continues to inspire generations of readers and artists alike.

A Short Introduction to the Charming World of Peter Rabbit
As you may already know, The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a timeless children’s classic written by the English writer, Helen Beatrix Potter.
The story follows the mischievous and disobedient Peter Rabbit as he ventures into Mr. McGregor’s garden, a vegetable garden that he has been warned to stay away from.
Throughout the story, valuable lessons are learned about the consequences of disobedience and the importance of following rules.
In conclusion, these Peter Rabbit Printable Watercolor Coloring Pages offer a fun and educational way to engage with one of the most beloved children’s classics of all time. So, grab your watercolor paints, print out some coloring sheets, and enjoy the adventures of Peter Rabbit and his friends.
