What can I say – more watercolours!

Saw this cute Dinosaur online (https://www.naolito.com) and thought it would be a good design to practice my shadows in Watercolour.

Mini watercolours

Merry Christmas! I love holidays – so much more time for painting and playing.

Now I have some watercolour paper, I could finally experiment with the ‘wet on wet’ technique vs the ‘wet on dry’. I really like wetting the paper and letting all the colours bleed and blend. My favourite’s definitely rainbow fox 🙂

Trying watercolours

Feeling a bit inspired today, I thought I would try my hand at proper watercolour painting from some tubes I had lying around. Needless to say I have a lot to learn, but its fun to experiment 🙂

Of course I was too impatient to wait for my watercolour paper to arrive in the mail, so that will definitely make a difference next time!

I think I might request a watercolour pan set for Christmas this year. I found painting a flat colour was easy enough, but the challenge was trying to mix colours – this will take some practice! I love the watery look of these paints though. It seems if you wet all the paper with clean water first, you get an even more watery look. So once that darn paper arrives I should hopefully be able to achieve this – regular drawing paper was WAY too thin and started to warp :/

Lucky for all the wonderful blogs, videos and tutorials out there I think I’ll be able to make something nice relatively quickly. Feel free to share your watercolour tips in the comments!
