7 Must-Know, Widely Used Watercolor Techniques For Beginners
Step 2: Wet-On-Dry Watercolor Technique
The next technique is the wet-on-dry technique. Mix Cadmium Red Light, Magenta, and Opera paint with some water, then start painting straight onto the dry surface of a different rectangle. This technique allows for more control over where your paint goes, and while the edges of the paint may still blur when it touches another area of paint, it doesn’t fade or bleed as much as the wet-on-wet technique.
When you’re finished, wait for the paint to dry, then remove the paper from the cardboard before taping the next sheet down.
