How to Approach Watercolor Painting As a Beginner


How to Approach Watercolor Painting As a Beginner


Looking to expand on your paint-by-number skills? Watercolor painting is a rewarding and expressive skill. The paints are made with color pigments suspended in a water-soluble base. You control the addition of water to create a luminous or striking painting. Watercolor paints are often chosen to render landscapes or natural scenes. Whatever you choose to paint, you'll need to buy supplies, get set up, and start practicing.

Being a beginner means you need to start somewhere and that's fine; just take it slowly and enjoy your new painting skills! Watercolor painting is both enjoyable and a bit frustrating at times. It all depends on how you approach it. It is one of the most versatile mediums to work in. You can paint from very controlled and detailed, to very loose and impressionistic. It is recommended that you don't begin with the idea of creating a masterpiece your first time! Take small steps and learn in stages.

Many instructors begin with the "wet-into-wet" technique, but this course will introduce you to the most common technique, "wet-into-dry", meaning a wet brush into dry paper.

Let's begin with using watercolors!

and also you will learn painting on pansies , For all their delicate charm, pansies are a hardy flower. They lend themselves to watercolor because their petals look almost as though they have been colored by an artist. Their rich, velvety red, violet, purple and yellow blossoms have a backdrop of spiked green leaves. If you haven't tried painting pansies, do it. They aren't hard and the results rival the real thing.
