Watercolour provides artists with a great amount of freedom compared to other media. It is possible to create loose, impressionistic techniques on the one hand or deep, richly coloured works created with layers. This guide outlines the different materials used when painting in water colour and also outlines the basic watercolour techniques such as laying a wash, working with wet or dry paper and how to create special effects.
These simple steps are enough to give any painter an understanding of how watercolour works so that they can painting in no time.
