The Wet-In-Wet Watercolor Technique: Mastering The Basics To Paint Exotic Fish
Step 10: An Impression Of Underwater Plant Life
For the underwater plants, mix Permanent Green #1 and Cadmium Yellow Lemon for a lighter green, then fill in the white strips you’ve left behind. You can also use this color to streak in a few extra leaves in the background as well; just make sure the background is semi-dry so the green won’t spread too much into the background. Keep your brushstrokes loose for that impressionistic and fluid feel, and don’t worry too much about filling in every white space – the white will help brighten your entire painting, plus you will dot more in later.
