WaterColor Tips #1

Tips from: http://www.watercolorpainting.com/


Mix several puddles of different colors on your watercolor palette. I used a round #10 red sable for most of this exercise. A round #4 red sable was used to add smaller variations in the gaps.

  A larger brush that holds more paint will allow you to make longer continuous brush strokes.

  Fully load or "charge" your watercolor brush with paint and starting at an edge of your paper, start painting a winding line of paint across the page.

  Keep the width of the brush stroke as consistent as you can. You can recharge your brush as needed and pick up where you left off.


While the last stroke is still wet, rinse out your brush and grab the next color.

  Start pulling another linear stroke next to last one painted. Follow parallel with the previous stroke as it snakes across your page.

  Do not let the washes touch. Leave white paper between each stroke.

  This is the time to be daring...try to get as close as you can to the previous stroke. How thin can that white stripe get?

 Repeat as necessary with different colors until you've filled the paper, then rinse.

  This exercise requires a certain steadiness of hand to do without letting the washes touch as you maneuver across your paper.
