Painting in watercolour, for me, is all about the transparency. I love to paint watercolour paintings that are full of light and appear to bounce off the paper. I generally don't mix colours. Instead, I blend them on the paper rather than on the palette. This helps to achieve a beautiful translucency that make my paintings glow with light.
Using transparent watercolours, in this class, I'll demonstrate how I painted this beautiful pink rose.
Some of the techniques you will learn in this class:
- How to load the brush with paint
- Work wet on wet
- Work wet on dry
- Laying glazes
- Blending colors on the paper
- Interpreting a reference photo
- Adding detail
You can paint along with me because I have included the line drawing of the rose and the reference photo that I took. This class is suitable for intermediate watercolour painters but beginners will also gain a lot of useful information and experience because I take you step by step, petal by petal, leaf by leaf, in real time, through the entire painting process.
