Learning the wet-in-wet technique will:

  • Is the single way to create those loose, flowing, mingling washes that everyone loves
  • Is the best way to create and maintain transparency – that unique property of watercolor
  • Will lay the foundation for gaining expertise in all other areas of watercolor painting

  • A medium and a large size round brush
  • A palette with your colors – Cobalt Blue, Thalo Blue and Permanent Alizarin Crimson.
  • Watercolor paper – preferably Arches 140lb Cold Press cut to about 11 x 15 or so
