Easy Watercolor Landscape: Painting A Vineyard In Napa Valley
Step 10: A Flowery Impression And Using A Magic Eraser
For the roses, use the no. 6 rigger brush and Permanent Carmine for a pinkish tone, and paint the rounded petals of each flower. Again, you’re trying to get the impression of roses rather than paint photorealistic flower petals. This is one of the reasons why Bill paints so quickly, as he’s relying on his instincts instead of overthinking what roses should look like.
After that, Bill shows a way to lift out the paint in your watercolor landscape. Simply use the artist’s tape to gently tape around the area you want to change or fix, then scrub over that area with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Be careful not to go past the tape! After lifting out the paint, gently peel the tape off as you don’t want to ruin the surface underneath. To demonstrate, Bill does this to the top half of the winery’s roof as he accidentally covered it with green paint.
