Taking the entire process step by step is the right approach, especially if you are a watercolor beginner. Start by sketching out the overall lines of your design but keep in mind to use a very sharp pencil and keep a steady light hand on your paper to maintain a clean, delicate canvas. When it comes to the actual paper we recommend you to choose a porous type that will help you absorb excess water. Start with the basic tones and grow from there, merging hues until you will reach the exact desired tones. The quantity of water necessary will depend on the desired effect create don your canvas. You can opt for a diffuse design where more water and discreet tones will characterize the piece.We all love those dripping effects many watercolor paintings have but the truth is the mastering of this technique is quite tricky; select a shinier paper that will allow the colored water to flow and drip better. You must understand that the mastering of the watercolor technique might take a while so be patient, take your time and persevere.

  1. Sorry, I’m learning to draw with watercolour , I see you draw the basic sketch before with a pencil ? What kind of pencil do you use?
    Does the pencil dirty the paper? I mean when you color with th watercolour I can see the pencil under . They mix and the color gets dirty . How do you do ?
