Wet-On-Wet Watercolor




These are some aquatic creatures I water colored last spring of 2012. Parts of them were painted wet-on-wet to give an extra sense of depth of surface smoothness. Wet-on-wet can be a scary way to paint, but with practice, less so and oh so, so worth it! If you belong to a water color group, and would like to hire me to teach a wet-on-wet water color workshop, please let me know. I am booking for the summer of 2013 and 2014. My studio phone is 916-737-2311 in California, USA. By-the-way --- HAPPY NEW 2013!

These are beautiful pieces! And I'd love to be able to have you come to give our watercolor group a workshop but I think it may be beyond our budget to fly you out here to Ohio :( I'll just have to see if I can come there to take a workshop sometime!

Would love to have you at one of my Calif. workshops Rhonda! I am developing a summer one that may be of interest. I'll try to remember to announce it on my blog here and on my Facebook page.

Push through the scary stage, Michael.

I remember those, love them. As I look at them, it looks like some strong lines help focus.

Dianne, Yes, I often utilize strong line work in my watercolors.
