playing with watercolor

watercolor is frustratingly beautiful (at times….) it has taken me forever to get a feel for watercolor.

what I can share with you……

  1. keep it clean and save some whites

  2. layer your colors- the trick is finding that wetness that will allow the colors to mix and blend; otherwise, mix on your palette and then paint

  3. you gotta find the balance that works for you on the dryness/ wetness…. so keep playing until you find that balance.

  4. don’t be afraid to add things that will help make your watercolor yours - thus my pencil scribble on this piece. what is your signature mark? or color? sprinkle that onto your work.
