If you are new to watercolours, this short free tutorial is for you!
I will demonstrate the different techniques that can be used to paint botanical watercolours including: Wet-on-Dry, Wet-on-Wet, Damp Brush, Dry Brush and Lifting Out.
Practice what you see here, then look out for the in-depth BOTANICAL START tutorials which show you the application of these techniques for a range of botanical subjects.
