This week we’re bringing you a clip that you can file under “learning watercolor basics.” But instead of seeing it on its own, on a scrap piece of paper, it’s nice to see how something like a basic wet-into-wet watercolor wash works in an actual painting.
The clip is from Susan Bourdet’s Bold & Beautiful: Backyard Wildlife in Watercolor and in it you’ll learn how to paint a colorful wet-into-wet background wash. Susan uses four pigments and two brushes to add deep, variegated tones to her wildlife scene. Plus, you’ll learn how to tilt your paper to make colors move and blend.
