Birdhouse and Flowers - Sponging For Beginners
Easy Techniques For Soft Edges in Watercolor
Birdhouse and Butterfly for Beginners
Soft versus hard edges - use wet on wet and see your options for applying a mottled texture.
Liquid masking and watercolor pencils are also demonstrated, though optional for this lesson.
Work wet on wet for a soft blue sky and cool green foliage. Then use a piece of natural sponge, or any of the other many texturing options offered to dab on the summer phlox. Paint some stems and the birdhouse and this quick lesson is done.
Great practice for beginners, and a pretty painting that your garden friends will love. Your phlox flowers can be any color you like.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson.
My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.
I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.
I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!
Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.
