Sailboat Sunset - Mastering The Graded Wash
Secrets To Beautiful Graded Washes The Easy Way
Painting a smooth graded wash, from light to dark or one color to another - that's what watercolor is all about!
(I wish I had mastered the graded wash early in learning how to paint, but it's never too late. Practice and learn, whether you're a beginner or accomplished artist.)
So, how do you paint a smooth transition, without messy brushstrokes? In this lesson, you'll learn how to let gravity do the work, and build your colors up step by step, for the perfect graded wash every time.
You will receive an outline page you can trace and written instructions to go along with the step by step video demonstration, plus a quick demo of an easy way to show off your work by matting.
Set yourself up for success by learning the graded wash technique today. You'll also be using a limited palette of red, yellow and blue for practice mixing and a professional looking result.
Find your way to smooth sailing with watercolor painting when you learn how to do the perfect graded wash.
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.
