Fun Lake Scene Teaches Watercolor Techniques For Water & Reflections
Step 13: Painting Reflections In The Water (Part 2)
For the reflection of the rowboat, use a dampened clean brush to lift out paint directly underneath the boat. It shouldn’t be too difficult as the paint should still be wet, but try not to brush too hard or you may damage the paper. Wipe lifted paint onto a paper towel, and zigzag the edges of your reflections a little to create a ripply illusion on the water’s surface.
Switch to the size 6 brush, and use the same muddy brown mixture to paint the reflections of the tree trunks and branches while the paper is still damp. Waver them a little to get a watery effect, and feel free to distort them even more as you move towards the front of the lake.
