MINI-TUTORIAL about WATERCOLOR EFFECTS
Normally I had a lot to do today, but I didn't feel very well and so I wasn't able to do the things I had planned. In the middle of the afternoon I just decided to throw together this little overview (better than nothing...)
Last weekend at the MMC Berlin I was invited to give a little workshop concerning watercolors. One part were effects; and in preparation I made little cards with different effects to show to the participants. As they all liked the cards a lot I thought I could as well scan them and share them with you. As always, this is just the way I do it, it's no universal way
. Also, there are a lot more tools and methods you can use to create effects, this is just a very small selection. Try also using toothbrushes, sponges etc. for your paintings. Also, the paper plays an important role! Effects will of course also look different on different paper. (I believe there is a better overview concerning the matter already existing on dA).
If you find some things that are strange, things you don't understand or simply typos (I reread it a million times now I swear I'm blind...) - please contact me! Also, if you have other questions - just ask me! I'll try to answer you as fast as possible and the best I can.
Now I hope this is helpful to some of you and that you have fun being creative with watercolors!
