Watercolor tutorial 2 by emperpep Watercolor tutorial 2 by emperpep
My 2nd watercolor tutorial.

It might looks pretty long, because it's filled with many pictures to help you understand my process, instead of using a lot of texts.


Edit: Wet in Wet is : Adding wet colors on damp sheet of paper or an area of still-wet paint, and let them run out over the wet surface, giving soft-hazy effect



If you have any watercolor question, Feel free to ask me.

Link to the original work.

Suggester's words: Watercolor tutorial 2 by *emperpep is absolutely useful, she use words very easy to understand, her steps to follow are easy, too! Makes it look so easy that a beginner at watercolors could do it. Even gives tips for scanning. There's so many details and see its process in this tutorial is simply amazing.

Your works are always beautifully done Q v Q however, I'm a bit curious, how do you keep your paper from warping when painting? Does it just not warp, or do you use tape?

I use 300g paper and it doesnt curl, but I have to avoid using too much water

185g paper will definitely curl alot if you use streaky wash technique on it :)

Thank you very much for this tutorial! Very helpful :) Your artworks are so pretty.

I have a few questions!

Have you ever tried using watercolor pencils? How do you feel about them? Do you think it would be easier for a beginner to start with watercolor pencils first, or does it not matter?

Thanks for the help, and thanks again for this amazing tutorial :)

According to my preference, watercolor pencils usually leave unpleasant pencil marks on the picture when diluted with water, and I feel like they aren't smooth enough compared to real watercolor, even with artist quality pencils like Caran Dache Supracolor or Faber castell Albretch-Durer.

I only used them for touch up with watercolor painting, and sometimes used them as dry media.
