Discover a process that allows you to work quickly and spontaneously. In Innovative Watercolor Techniqueswith Ryan Fox, you’ll spend more time creating lively layers and less time worrying about careful line work or moisture control.
You’ll work light to dark and then protect your values with wax — a process that is incredibly forgiving. Discover how to think more in shapes and less in individual items like trees, buildings, and animals. Use negative painting to add important contrast, and let your pigments mingle on your paper to create beautiful and spontaneous-looking colors with each pass. Ryan works through two complete batik demos including an urban landscape and a giraffe.
