Geranium in Watercolor - How to Paint Shadows
Painting Techniques for Beginners Explained
EASY WATERCOLOR TECHNIQUES FOR BEGINNERS
Basic Watercolor Techniques Demonstrated - Painting Shadows, Wet on Wet Background, Lifting With a Thirsty Brush
Do you have trouble with shadows?
You're definitely not alone. In this lesson, you'll learn how to paint any shadow with a neutral color, wet on wet. You can dry the shading and just paint your transparent color over top for a beautiful effect.
This technique is so helpful - you'll see it twice! An extra video demonstration for shadows is included at the bottom of the Curriculum.
Take the difficulty out of painting believable shadows. You don't have to juggle values and colors all at the same time with this method.
In Geraniums, many basic watercolor techniques are demonstrated and explained, so you'll learn as you paint. Guided practice is excellent practice, in wet on wet washes, using a thirsty brush and re wetting and lifting, as well as painting.
Work at your own speed, paint with a friend, or create a card for a loved one. Just have fun, because the more fun you have, the more you'll paint, and the better your watercolor techniques will become. So paint today!
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!
