Lesson Discussion

    • Hi Lisa,

      Watercolor pencils are applied and then activated on the surface by adding water. Colors are mixed directly on the surface by layering. This creates a slightly different effect and many times the texture of the mark made with the pencil is still visible.

  1. I really like the effects of watercolor the bleeding
    can create some interesting patterns that can actually
    be a help with certain details like rocks, mountains,
    and clouds etc.. great session Matt.

  2. Very helpful as I prefer somewhat abstract or loose landscapes,especially if there are vague buildings included. Like the way you make your foliage; this is somewhat my Achilles heel, and you helped me a lot in this regard. More watercolor, please. Love your program. Tom
