Anonymous asked: would you mind doing a tutorial on watercolouring?


Answer:

sojuice:

sorry for the late reply…

i don’t take art classes or anything… and i don’t watercolor a lot either,

so expect this to be pretty ghetto lol

this is what i got from experimenting

image

i guess you would first need the watercolor paint,

so…. i went to walmart and bought the crayola 24 watercolor set for 4 bucks. The brushes were for 2 bucks

i don’t have watercolor paper either… so i’m just going to use my sketchbook with another paper on the back to soak and stop the water from bleeding through

i’m sure you’ll probably find something better than what i have…haha

i’m also gonna use a styrofoam plate as my palette 

image

you’ll need a lot of paper towels too.

Or if you want other textures, you can use other stuff like brown paper bags

don’t use toilet paper because it’ll stick to the paper 

image

check beforehand if whatever you’re drawing with will smudge

im using a fountain pen here and it smudges in water

image

i couldn’t find my outline pens so i tried a ballpoint rsvp pen

and it doesn’t smudge, so i’ll use that

image

i’m gonna use the horrible brush the watercolor set came with to take the color out onto the palette

image

before you take other colors out onto the palette to mix, make sure to clean the brush so it doesnt taint the colors

image

you can mix the colors on the palette to get any desired color

image

think of what gradients you are going to use

i like to use blue ->purple / red->magenta / yellow -> peach, combinations like that.

image

you can first control the opacity of the watercolor by the wetness of your brush

the more wet your brush, the lighter your color will be and vice versa

but… there is a certain point until when the watercolor is so diluted, you’re basically applying water. then, it is hard to paint in form and it takes forever to dry. 

there’s ways to deal with this, like mixing for a lighter blue

you can also control ‘darkness’ by drying time

if you pat the watercolor with a paper towel early, it will remove and dry the watercolor to make it lighter

image

so… the longer you set the watercolor to dry, the darker it will be left

image

i’m going to paint clouds, so i used the blue 

i’m trying going for a blue -> purple, so i’m going to use the purple as well

image

so i applied the purple, then i pat it down with a paper towel in the areas where i wanted it lighter

image

something like that

image

image

trying to scan the drawings in kills a lot of colors…

hope that helps 8)
