Jade mountains - modern watercolour

I started by sketching out my mountains design in pencil.


Then I painted the main sections with green watercolour paint, before erasing the pencil marks. I didn't use proper watercolour paper, but the fairly thick sketchbook paper held up okay. Watercolour is much harder to control when you're not using the right paper, but in this instance I kind of liked the effect :)


Finally, I added gold watercolour paint to the mountain tops. I've been wanting to try out my metallic watercolour paint for a while, and I just had to see that sparkle! It doesn't always show up as well after scanning, though, so it's great to learn how to add metallic textures digitally too. Thanks for a great class :)
