Introduction to Wet on Wet For Beginners

Suggesting Feathers and Foliage With A Cute Owl

No More Wet on Wet Blues!

Working wet on wet can be frustrating and messy. Learn the keys to turning your wet on wet washes into believable foliage, feathers, and texture in this introduction to using wet on wet for realism.

Learn the steps that will lead you through wet on wet washes into the realism of a cute owl on a dark night.

Practice makes perfect, and each part of the lesson, the foliage, the owl and the stump, repeats the same technique. Guided practice is excellent practice and repetition in different subjects helps you not only understand the technique, but also understand how to apply it to many subjects.

Lifting out the branch and trees is also demonstrated.

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.
