Learn How to Paint Curling Leaves in Watermedia

September 06, 2019 1 min read

In this clip from her video workshop, Commanding Color, watercolorist Sue Archer shows you how to develop your leaves so that they curve toward your viewer. Sue does this by adding a wash of watercolor that will darken her values but won’t grey her colors. She paints wet-into-wet and lays down the same pigments she’s already used to paint her vivid middle values. You’ll discover how changing the color in one area of your painting will change how your viewers will perceive the rest of your painting. Learn more about Commanding Color with Sue Archer here.
