Snowdrops - Learn Wet on Wet Wash With Masking For Beginners

Masking Shapes and Loose Washes of Color Create A Glowing Painting

Afraid of wet on wet?

Beginner Level Lesson - Uses Liquid Masking

With Snowdrops, you'll learn easy techniques for wet on wet washes that give you control of your colors. You'll learn how to apply color, mix color on the paper, move it around and change your mind without ruining your painting.

Wet on wet works best when you can apply it quickly and tilt the paper, so painting around tiny flowers won't work. This lesson uses liquid masking, painted on with an old brush, to save the flower area while you apply the wash.

The white of the flowers and dark value at the bottom will make any background color look beautiful, whether it's dark and dramatic or light and lovely.

Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher

My story is simple.

I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.

Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).

My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.

Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!

Happy Painting.
