Mini Watercolor Lessons
Here are ten short mini lessons to get the juices going. Not a substitute for being in a class, but you can get an idea of my fine arts approach to watercolor.
How to start out RIGHT. Buying the correct materials for professional results. Using only high quality paint, paper and brushes, and working from primaries.
Unraveling the mystery of pigments: how to detect the hidden colors in primary paint so as to never get muddy colors, unless you want to!.
Techniques of combining water and pigment to control the bleeds, for luminous watercolor effects.
How to mix any color from only six basic primaries, so you can learn to see and make exact colors.
How to leave the paper white with several methods.
Landscapes with fully saturated paper.
Make a color wheel.
Making tertiary colors with primaries.
Make hundreds of grays and browns with total control.
