I will be posting photos of my drawings that will show you the different ways you can use watercolor. Being able to notice the different colors used in each one of these photos will be the first step to understanding how to use watercolor.
This is the most recent piece I have been working on. Layering with watercolors will give you more depth in your piece than if you mix it before adding it to the paper.
Quiz: To test your understanding of color mixing, I would like you to see if you can guess how many layers you can see within the piece. Also, notice that shadows were added after the base colors.
