Painting Demonstration 1

Live Oak Drive II Watercolor Painting Lesson 1

First, I sketch out the painting. Masking out areas allows me to work without worrying about reserving areas. I reserve a few areas with a clear wax crayon. Don't use wax where you don't want what's underneath to be permanent. It can never be removed. I lightly start tracing the trees in greenery in yellows and greens.

I start framing in my center of interest. I want strong, rich colors to start. I'll pull up some of the paint, but hints of the lush richness of the colors will show up through the haze.
