Master Watercolor Techniques : Learn how to paint lights and shadows
I really can't say enough good things about Sweta first class on Skillshare ! It's short but packed with information. I prefer when teacher do short classes so it's easy to watch it all again to help you grasp the whole painting and gain confidence to try myself.
I needed a few tries of the painting to get the values the way I wanted. Here's the end result:
I did not have the same colors as Sweta, the main difference was that I used neutral tint instead of sodalite genuine. I also used white gel pen instead of white gouache because I was afraid I couldn't control the thin brushstrokes well enough to make the white seem crisp :)
