WATERCOLOUR MADE EASY
Okay, last card from me today and I better get cracking on days 9 and 10.
On day 7 Jennifer Rzasa shared some great tips to make watercolouring easier. I found them to be a great help as I'm a beginner with watercolour.
First I painted the basic shape of my feather with just plain water so when I come in with the watercolour, the paint will run along the already wet areas allowing the colour the spread. Then I go in with a smaller brush with fresh paint for the finer details. I'm not sure if I'm explaining it correctly but it has sure been fun. Again, with many of these new techniques I'm learning, I had to do it a few times to get the hang of it. Free hand painting can be scary.
As you can see my feather is not perfect. But you can tell its a feather right?
Thanks for joining me today.
Hope you enjoyed my card.
