In this article, we've listed seven tips beginners can keep in mind as they use watercolor as an alternative medium. Read on!
As a beginner, have at least one or two large flat bruses for laying a wash and several round brushes of different sizes for your painting's details.
Clean your brushes thoroughly after every yse with running water and some soap.
As a guide, you can use a masking fluid to protect your paper's lightest areas. Masking fluid dries into rubber so it's easy to remove with your finger.
On a side note, you might find this watercolor mixing chart a fun activity to do! Make your own color combinations and schemes!
Enjoy watercolor's ability to reveal layers of transparency! Unlike oil and acrylic, watercolor allows light to travel through the different paint layers and reflect it back up off the white of your art paper.
Experiment with water too! To have more control of your paint with less transparency, use less water on your brush. For more unpredictability and greater transparency, use more water.
