Watercolor Techniques: edges, wet on wet, dry brush, etc.

I am currently producing a series of articles and demonstrations that will make up a Beginner's Guide to Watercolor Painting.
The Breakaway, Windsor, NSW

The first in this series, which will appear under the Watercolor Techniques section of my Painting With Watercolors website, covers the subject of the different types of edges we create as artists in general and watercolor artists in particular.

My reason for creating this section is because I often have the challenge of taking on new students and integrating them with my more experienced ones. This sometimes has me running around doing multiple demonstrations (all be is some are very basic) for the students at different levels. My idea is that in the future I can sit a student down in front of a computer screen and they can catch up as need by following the techniques on my site. I will also have some very basic videos done of the types of exercises and paintings my beginner watercolor artists do.

Happy painting,

Joe Cartwright

I always wondered how do people do this kind of things... Look at this one as well: Drawings Paintings Prints, I'm searching art blogs to learn more about drawing, I really would like to develop it..
