Watercolour Tutorial: Advice and Guidance by Kidura Watercolour Tutorial: Advice and Guidance by Kidura
Watercolour Guidance and Advice Tutorial
(on watercolour paper)


I know I'm not the greatest artist out there, but I thought this might help anyone wanting to try out watercolours ^^

I really hope it is helpful, but if there is something you want to ask please feel welcome to, I'll do my best to give out good advice :aww:

EDIT NOTE: Actually, I know I recommended soaking your paper with water before use but, yes they may dry slower, but it's actually not good for layering paints... After one coat, putting on another might rub off the paint underneath so be careful. So this technique would only be good for one layer afterwards. I forgot to might this, sorry brain was having a duh moment.

A useful guide indeed~ Just recently bought some watercolors (tubes) & I wanted to read up on special techniques before using them. Glad I came across this!

Very pretty! I just have a questin though.. when you mix colours together straight from the tube of paint, will you need to add water to the mixture of paint?

What brand of paint do you use? Also, for watercolor I have only ever used the blocks (and coffee), so I was wondering, how do you paint with the tube watercolor?

All of your advice about drying and wetting the paper are really helpful. I don't have any watercolor paper right now, but once I do get my hands on some, I'm going to try out what I learned from this tutorial! I like working with watercolors and should really buy more paper ^^;
