SAILBOATS DEMO WRSS JUL14 2016 (1)

This was a demo-lesson in basic watercolor done late at night when I was a little tired!  But, it uses some interesting techniques. First, I show it as a ‘paint-around’, then as a ‘liquid rubber-resist method’. (I used ‘Pebeo’ brand but there are many others). Then I used FW Acrylic Ink for the ‘whites’ to clean uo the sails and other things like wave highlights. In video 1 of 5 I go through the under sketch, including perspective for the boats. It shows how important it is to be able to make very smooth and graduated washes and how to use hard and soft edges, also, lift-outs.
