by Auburn Silver

There are many watercolour techniques such as underpainting and watercolour washes used by the artists to make their paintings much greater.

 

Are you thinking of ways to add fancy details and textures to your painting using watercolours? Be aware of the tips, and then try it out. Let your painting be special among others.

Watercolour washes

Laying a watercolour wash can be done on a wet surface or a dry one. That’s up to your choice. It’s normal to face accidents during your first few attempts. Keep trying!

Wet-in-wet watercolour painting

This is a very basic technique. You just have to brush water onto the paper and then spread the paints over the water wash as you wish. The effect it finally gives is magical.

Underpainting

This is a monochrome wash you do on the first layer. You can then add the next layers of transparent washes over that underpainting. This helps you to make your painting more realistic.

Other techniques

Gradients and colour blending, layering, lifting colour, and dry brush technique are some of the other watercolour techniques used by the artists.
