'letting go with watercolors
When you start painting 'loose, you realize that details don't matter anymore, that it's all about creating 'shapes and letting the paint flow on the paper.
In this class, I will be teaching you how to apply colors 'wet on wet; what is the best ratio between water and paint; how to wet the paper so you have the most control, but at the same time - you are still painting 'loose; what areas to leave 'paper dry while wetting the paper; and how to lift the colors.
I used to didn't understand 'lifting, and how essential 'lifting is to watercolors, so today, I can't wait to share all the tips with you.
'Lifting can literally change the entire style of your painting.
Elephant portrait (in this class)
Before you begin painting it's always important to plan all the steps ahead. I have learned that unless you visualize the process - the chances are your painting will not be as successful. At the beginning of each class, I always share about the process of painting the object.
The elephant above is from a different class (on Patreon), but I wanted to share the image because I painted it in the same style. 'Loose and 'wet on wet. What's also important is to always think of light and shadows, to create a contrast. Colors do play a big role in our painting, but they are least important because you can create a beautiful painting in monochrome as well, as long as you pay attention to light and shadows.
In watercolor, 'light is our paper. You always want to preserve the areas to stay either 'paper-white, or 'light. My general idea of applying colors is to add colors first to mid-tones (when referring to the reference), and darkest tones last.
This is where the ratio between water and paint is very important. Too much water mixed with paint and you lose control. I will be teaching you about the ratios and what I call: "heavy cream" or "half and half like ratio"
Hi, I’m your watercolor teacher!
After starting two online schools (first on Patreon and later on Teachable), I wanted to create a membership-based school with more detailed classes. Something similar to what I'm offering on Teachable but a lot more affordable and with a broader choice of subjects.
