An intriguing Watercolor Technique

An intriguing Watercolor Technique


I figure I will call it Watercolor Overpainting! I'm certain you have known about watercolor underpainitng for pastels. I cherish beginning a pastel painting with a watercolor underpainting. In any case, I uncovered an old painting that helped me to remember another approach to utilize watercolor with pastels. Water shading splattered over the pastels! Investigate:

The white and pink bloom marks are truly watercolor spots. To do this I painted my glade and red poppies with pastels. I needed to include a proposal of littler less unmistakable blooms. I stacked my paintbrush with watercolor and I tapped the brush over the lower knoll in my artistic creation. (I secured the territory that I would not like to splatter with a bit of paper) I used some white gouache to blend with my watercolor to make the hues more hazy.

It was a fun impact and I should attempt it once more!! It is fun the things you find when you play!

The present painting was a more seasoned one and despite the fact that I loved the blossoms there was much that could have been something more! I made a few adjustments and you can see them in the updated painting at the highest point of this post!
