7 Tackle the back­ground de­tails

ImagineFX - - In Depth Pencil & Watercolour -

I’m now be­gin­ning to add back­ground dec­o­ra­tion us­ing a paint­ing tech­nique called ‘wet-on-wet’. I do this by plac­ing non-pig­mented wa­ter on the paper in swirling pat­terns. When the wa­ter is placed in the right lo­ca­tions, I then ap­ply the wa­ter­colour pig­ment on to these wet ar­eas. The pig­ment will flow freely and create swirling pat­terns in the wa­ter.
