Morning Mist In Watercolor
Morning mist is one of those subjects that seems difficult but really isn’t. If you think about it, mist on the ground is essentially the same thing as if a cloud landed on the ground. The key to painting clouds are light colors and soft textures. It is the same with mist.
In this painting lesson, we’ll use the basic wet-in-wet technique with a little twist to get the look of mist on the ground. It’s really much easier than it looks. The key thing is to work very wet.
Drawing Layout For Any Painting
One note on the drawing layout. The downloadable layouts are done with heavy lines to make it easy to see and copy onto your watercolor paper. It is best not to draw the lines too heavy on your paper, especially in the sky, since there is a good chance the lines will show through the paint. It’s not a deal-breaker, but those heavy pencil lines are sometimes a distraction.
