Watercolour Tutorial

Press the "Download Image" button on the right.

Here is a watercolour tutorial. I wanted to add this because there is also other ways besides the traditional way of paintting with watercolours.
I hope that this tutorial will help you out. And I hope you understand this since my english isnt amazingly good.

Oh, and here is the finished pic, and another traditional art tutorial of mine:

Quick question (just because the tutorial didn't specify) is the technique your using for this piece a 'wet on dry' technique or a 'wet on wet' technique?

Thanks for this, I've just got into watercolour and I've been looking for a tutorial like this! Can I ask though, in the tutorial, your watercolour seems to be so strong, where as when I use them, be the ones at school or home, it just comes washed out? Could you help me out? Thanks man! :)

Good quality watercolors are important and I also use white color that isn't so common in the traditional watercolor technique. Actually the white isn't really even considered as watercolor. But it works with water so I use it with watercolors. I use less water to make the colors stronger and paint more than one layer of color. But you need to wait the earlier layer to dry before adding a new one. Btw I'm not "man", but thanks for your comment.
Thanks for that advice! :)

Hi there, I hope you don't mind but I was wondering if I could submit this into a group I'm a co-founder in? It's called :iconwateryartists: and tutorials like this would be fabulous!
nokecha's avatar
Sure, thank you for asking! Just give a link to the original one in my site and it's ok! :)

Oh don't worry, it's the same as when you submit your work into a group, so it'll immediately link to your page, so everyone knows it's yours :)

What kind of kind of ink are you using? Mine just got run out an tinged my work black.
nokecha's avatar
I used some kind of brown ink I think, so not black, some color that wont bleed on the watercolors.
