Watercolor Tip #1

Watercolor's most important ingredient is - WATER!
It is very important to know its characteristics or you will not be able to properly handle this medium.
Many of the wonderful effects achieved in a great watercolor painting are directly attributable to the amount of water on the paper, in your pallet mixes and on your brush. By keeping an eye on just how wet or otherwise all of the above are you can create magical wet on wet washes, dramatic dry brush edges or sharp wet on dry lines and surfaces - as well as an infinite range between each of these states.
