Do you ever find yourself staring at a blank sheet of paper and not knowing where to start when painting any subject? I’ve been there! In this video, I give you the 5 basic steps to paint literally anything with watercolor. Yep, that includes landscapes, animals, flowers…anything!
So next time you sit down to paint, remember this:
- Sketch the basic shapes.
- Draw the contour of the subject.
- Paint the base layer.
- Add midtones.
- Finish with darkest (and highlight) details.
