Then I stumbled onto John Lovett’s site.
A picture is worth a thousand words…
My first few attempts at using watercolour was disastrous and was more a play of paint and colour on a page. As I wanted watercolour to be more than another medium to create colourful backgrounds, I realise that I have to practice (and practice and practice).
So here’s the result of my first exercise (taken from John Lovett’s site):
Now I was still getting used to how watercolours change when it dries and the “painting” above looked really weird while it was still drying, so I tried again (below).
As could be seen, I’m still having trouble controlling how much water to use XD
So I’ll need more practice and my next few entries will most likely record my attempts at using this medium.
