Wet-on-dry is another basic technique used in watercolor painting.
While wet-on-wet watercolor gives a soft diffused look, wet-on-dry watercolor is perfect when you want to add layers or details to your painting. It’s commonly seen in realistic-style watercolor painting, but you can also do it with loose-style.
Follow along the exercises in this video to practice this technique. I also show you a sampling of my work where I used wet-on-dry so that you can see the possibilities of what you can achieve!
In this video, I used my size 16 and size 6 Princeton Heritage 4050 brush.
