The wet-into-wet watercolor technique is so fundamental to this medium that it is a requirement for all watercolor painters.  In this lesson, you’ll learn two different ways to create wet-into-wet washes. We’ll create beautiful, subtle gradations that work really well for skies in your landscape paintings.

Learning the wet-in-wet technique will:

  • Help you gain confidence in managing the water along with the color
  • 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

What you’ll need to follow this video

  • A large round and/or a large flat (1 1/2″ or 2″)brush
  • Paint – Ultramarine Blue and Permanent Alizarin Crimson.
  • Watercolor paper – two sheets about 11″h x 7″w each – preferably Arches 140lb Cold Press (the link will take you to Amazon.com if you want to order paper. And yes, I get a small commission if you do. Thanks!)

Get ready, turn on the video and let’s jump in!
