In the process of creating a video demonstrating how to create skin colors with watercolor paints, I realized that there is some prior knowledge needed. In this video I share recommended materials (and brands) and basic watercolor techniques that are easy and successful in the classroom. (*I especially have “regular” classroom teachers in mind.)
1- At one point I rashly say that if you take care of your brushes, they “last forever.” Not true of course, but they will last a long while if cared for properly!
2- The little hand you see is my son. He was supervising my recording and *almost* managed to remain unseen and unheard. It’s kind of challenging when you’re six.
3- I didn’t get a chance to share my other “favorite” drawing material to use with watercolors. They are oil pastels and they give sensational results! Will post more on that another day.
4- My husband noted that my art examples weren’t too spectacular. He’s right. Sorry! I was really trying to hurry!
Without further ado… watercolor basics!
I hope this was helpful. Do you have any other questions about using watercolor paints that you’d like answered?
Coming VERY soon It’s up!… the post on creating skin tones with watercolors (also with a video!) Woo hoo!
