Simple Watercolor Painting: Mini Nebulas Using a Variegated Wash
Step 5: Try Other Colors for Another Simple Watercolor Painting
At this point, you’re done with your first mini nebula! Feel free to try another blend of colors. In this demonstration, the artist also created a second nebula with different colors, but using the same simple watercolor painting techniques we just walked through. She uses a mix of Viridian Hue, Lemon Yellow Hue, Cadmium Red Hue, and Indigo, but feel free to use your own colors (as long as Indigo is kept for the color of outer space).
Doing a few more will also be a good way to practice the different techniques and washes you just learned. Remember that watercolor painting is as expansive as the galaxy. There is always something beautiful to discover both in intricate heavenly bodies and in flexing your creativity.
