Pencil Lines In The Drawing Layout
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. There is a good chance the lines will show through the paint or not be with paint at all.
What you’ll need:
- Brushes – 1 1/2″ Flat, Medium Round, Small Round.
- Colors – Winsor Newton Perm. Alizarin Crimson, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Quinacridone Burnt Scarlet, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue
- Watercolor paper – preferably Arches 140lb Cold Press
