Card - Learn to Spatter and Erase Watercolor

How to Paint Smooth Washes

Learn Watercolor in a Small, Doable Card

Painting a smooth wash can be a challenge, but working small makes it doable.

The Step - by - Step guided practice in this lesson will give you some basics in working wet on wet. And give you simple answers to some common questions -

  • How to lay a smooth wash with no brushstrokes
  • What to do if yours dries too light or wimpy
  • How to work in layers for more control
  • Which colors to mix to give you professional results

And working on a small card is very doable, even for beginners, to give you confidence and understanding to tackle larger pieces.

This course uses basic colors, plus liquid masking and Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. You can use opaque white instead of the masking, if desired.

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.

Happy Painting.
