Don’t be fooled by the opening title!  This is one of the first videos shot and my editing skills were lacking! I may fix it someday. But for now, we can all have a laugh….


The Dry-In-Wet technique is not taught that much. But, it is an essential technique for getting the most out of watercolor painting. It is the easiest, most economical way of getting distinct but soft-edged shapes in your paintings.

This video shows you how it’s done.

What you’ll need:

  • Medium round brush
  • Watercolor paper – about 11″ x 15″ for the exercises
  • Various color
  • A rag to blot the brush – very important
