Step 8: Color Harmony And Stepping Back


Switch to the no. 12 Escoda round brush, then add more Cobalt Violet Light in the water area for a more vibrant color. This will help tie the whole painting together and create a harmony and a consistency throughout your study of Monet’s famous painting.

Throughout your process, remember to keep studying the reference picture, and step back once in a while to keep an eye on the overall feel of your painting. These little breaks also give you time to reflect on what’s working and what can be improved, so make sure not to rush your process. In addition, remember that because watercolor is more difficult to control, it’s fine to let it run free once in a while. Who knows – maybe you’ll get a few “happy accidents” along the way!
