PROJECT OVERVIEW:

The project you will need to do is create a fictitious landscape or a fictitious person that allows the medium to show off the costume they are wearing. With that said, you will need resources of the landscape or costumes to get ideas from. Line drawing will need to be approved before you are given the watercolor paper.

 

The beauty of watercolors is one that cannot be denied or ignored. Delicacy, transparency, imagination, all flow and dissolve into one fluid creation that can express so many emotions.Unlike acrylic painting techniques or oil painting, watercolors offer an unique creative freedom that will delight the senses and inspire your mind.

 

Watercolor Painting Techniques For Beginners. 

The proper materials will get you a long way if chosen properly, increasing the chances to success.

 

A PROPER SET OF WATERCOLOR PAINTS IS ESSENTIAL

Watercolor paints come in all sort of tones and prices, from the basic ones you used to use when drawing in kindergarten to expensive sophisticated ones promising incredible effects and surfaces. Nonetheless, price is not a factor when starting a watercolor painting project. Expensive doesn’t equal quality and you do not have to invest large amounts of money in supplies, especially if you are a beginner in watercolor painting techniques. The first step towards obtaining a wonderful creation is purchasing a set of watercolor paints based on quality.

When it comes to the shape watercolor paints can be found, you can opt between tubes of paint that usually come in pre-designed set or buying individual dried cakes of paint. Both forms require water to the mixture that is then applied to paper. No matter the choice, for a first try it is recommended to start with the primary colors such as red, yellow, black and blue and if you want, white, although in water-coloring this non-color is obtained by diluting other colors or by simply using the white of the paper left bare of color. Start your journey in the land of watercolor painting with a basic set that will be price-accessible and easy to store or carry with you in your travels.These sets usually come with a few basic brushes alongside a color palette where you can mix your colors additional to your basic tones of watercolor paint.
