Actually, I am more of a coffee person but I thought I would share this class project from 2016 with you.
A few watercolor tips:
- A little planning goes a long way. A small sketch will help you find the best composition for your subject before you start painting.
- Paint what you see, not what you know.
- Keep painting and don’t worry about making mistakes, you can learn a lot from them. Allow yourself to take risks and try different techniques when learning to paint, you may be surprised with your results.
- When you are learning to paint with watercolor, I recommend starting small with paintings that take only an hour or so of your time. Completing small paintings will give you a sense of accomplishment, provide you with many opportunities to try new things, and help you build your confidence painting with watercolor.
- Document and journal your work. Over time you can see how much you have improved. I keep a journal of my work listing: the painting number, painting title, date completed, paper used, brushes used, and sometimes the painting inspiration.
- Have fun and enjoy!
