Adv. Watercolor Techs.

Stretching my own watercolor skills, I worked with a few new techniques to

further advance the finished look of my paintings. For this Hibiscus I painted in sections, 

using wet on wet to start, and then adding layers of color as each section dried. 

I masked the tiny dots of yellow pollen and the stamen so I wouldn’t

have to try to paint around them later. And to get the vein lines, I reactivated

the color with more water and used a water dropper to move the pigment

and create the sharp lines. Each technique added something new and enhanced

the end result.
