Watercolor Painting Techniques of the Lesson:

‘Tufting’ – this is a techniques used to create a textured surface, like a quilted effect on a surface.

‘Under-wash’ – this is a wash that is applied to create a ‘glow’ that will show through and affect the colours that are layered on top. It is under everything else.

Charging color – Watercolor paint is deposited to an area and forced to charge into another wet area.

Preserve the white space – this means that you will avoid certain areas, leaving them without paint.

Wet in wet – This technique is used for creating special effects. When the artists wishes to avoid hard edges, the paint is deposited onto a surface which is also wet, usually it has been pre moistened with water or another color. The paint will disperse in an unpredictable pattern.

Wet in dry – This technique is used for a more controlled effect. The paint is applied to a specific area; the artist directs the placement of paint with the tip of the brush.

Wash – A wash is a uniform application of transparent paint over a specific area. There are several types of washes, some show value or color change where the color can change from light to dark showing gradation or show a variegation of color if two or more colors are used.

Casual wash – This is a wash applied in a casual or slip slap manner.

Flat wash – This is an evenly distributed wash applied to a controlled area, showing little or no value change.

Soft edge – Color is deposited to an area, a damp brush is used to remove the hard edge and create a damp area where the paint can gradually fade away.

    Instructions Exceeded Expectations

    Posted by Caroline on 8th Jan 2013

    This is my first watercolor pattern packet and I wasn't sure what I could expect in painting this style. Upon opening the .pdf file I was very pleased to find 24 pages of instructions, with 26 ( thank you for this - so very, very helpful ) high quality photos of progressive steps in completing the design. This makes me feel like I can actually achieve something similar to the finished picture in the packet when I am done. =)
