Story Line:

Take your watercolor paintings to the next level with these great techniques. Build a foundation with basic techniques like using wet-into-wet washes and glazing and layering before moving right along to using blooms, backruns, salt and wax to create great effects. Not only will you create gorgeous paintings, but you’ll have fun doing them.

Watercolors come in tubes, cakes or pans, pencils or liquids. They vary in price and quality, and there are many brands available. Stick to the professional quality paints, which offer consistency of color, lightfastness and a general degree of excellence.

Transparent paints (as opposed to opaque paints such as gouache) consist of pigment mixed with gum arabic, glycerin and a wetting agent. When you thin the paint with water, the glycerin and water allow the pigment to adhere to the surface of the paper. The wetting agent allows the paint to flow evenly as it is diluted.

Pan, or cake, paints come in half and full pans, individually or in kits. Kits are compact, travel well, and are useful for doing small paintings; however, it is difficult to mix enough paint for large, even washes. Cakes are small and you will use your favorite colors quickly, so have extras available.

Palettes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. A white dish, butcher’s tray or cookie sheet will suffice, but a traditional covered palette is best. A good palette has large separate wells or reservoirs to store each color and a large mixing area with no divisions. The deep wells are important because they allow you to have a lot of pigment available. They also keep colors from being contaminated by adjacent colors and help you see and arrange your colors in a logical order. The open mixing area allows you to mix enough color to get rich, saturated washes.

Mixing Colors on a Palette Make sure to always mix enough paint to avoid running out in the middle of your painting. A palette that has a large flat area is helpful for this.
