watercolour tutorial by emperpep watercolour tutorial by emperpep
As promised

Here is my very first watercolour tutorial that you've requested me.

and something I would like to say before you start

Make sure you have some tissue papers while you're working, This will helped you control the water flow, cleaning your brushes,etc.

and don't use only one water container, let's find 2-3 of them

one is for washing your brushes and one for mixed with paints.

If you use only 1 water container, the water will become muddy and give you some horrible dirty effects, ruin your precious work for all time.:lol:

And use the best quality brush you can afford.

Here's the link to my 2nd watercolor tutorial.

how can I make a light skin tone with raw sienna any ideas???
My colour palette is: Cobalt blue, Alizarin crimson hue, Light red, Burnt umber, raw sienna and ultramarine.
I really hope you can help me with my watercolours as you do such a terrific job on your art with water colour paints ^^

I may try mixing light red with raw sienna, and dilute them alot with water to make light skin tone, [or just use heavily diluted light red]

if you want pinkish skin try mixing with alizarin crimson

Dont you have any yellow? mixing light red with yellow might be better than mixing with raw sienna.

what brand do you use? cotman?

Yes I have a lemon yellow and yes I do use Cotman by Windsor and Newton and with the yellow should lemon yellow be alright to use with the light red?? :iconyuihugplz: and thank you for your reply it is really much appreciated.

You can try mixing them yourself and see if you like the result or not,

btw my favorite colors for skin [from cotman] are cadmium orange hue, and lemon yellow mixed with permanent rose
