Forest Using a Single Watercolor Tube: 3 of 4


This is the third in a series of 4 paintings intended to improve my watercolor painting abilities. One of the challenges for this project, for me at least, was learning how to wait for the paper to dry before I did anything else on it. When I’m using ink, I can go to another section of the page and work on that until the other part dries. Not so with this watercolor project. The water is all over the paper, as I my first layer used a wet-on-wet technique to create the atmospheric blur. I had to learn a different kind of patience for this style.

(I think I need to get better tape for my edges once I use up my current tape. The sides kept on curling up and un-sticking themselves in a very inconvenient way!)
