Watercolour Tip Of The Week (18th March 2005)

As you progress and achieve more control with your watercolours, try increasing the ‘slope’ of your easel, letting the first ‘wet into wet’ washes run down the paper.

Try to place the different colour mixes in the areas where you want them but don’t worry too much about the diffusion that occurs or the accuracy of this first wash.

Gradually, over weeks or months, increase the ‘slope’ to approach the vertical.

Increasing the angle of the paper, enables the washes to maintain their translucency, and with aid of masking fluid in the initial preparation, the lights can be retained.
