Learn the Watercolour Technique

The watercolor painting can be difficult at first. It is only with time and lots of practice that one becomes confident enough to paint better. Never become discouraged from your mistakes or lack of progress.

Learn how to apply a flat even wash, a wash from light to dark, and one from dark to light. It is only through much practice that you will learn how to control various washes. Try tilting the board while doing a graded wash. These are some basic watercolor techniques that beginners should perfect to build up on more complex techniques. Blend one color, while it is still wet, into another, then add a third color to the mixture.
