Watercolour 3: Tricks by Gold-Seven Watercolour 3: Tricks by Gold-Seven
Here's the last part of my watercolour tutorial series! I hope it rounds off the entire bunch nicely. It probably helps to have read the first two, but I suppose this works as a walkthrough alone.

Previous parts:
Part One - Materials: [link]
Part Two - Painting Basics: [link]

Finished Image can be found here: [link]

Enjoy! :)

It seems that your paintings are on A3 sized paper, so, how can you get the image? You took picture of the whole painting or you scanned it? I don't have scanner for A3 paper at my place so if you take photo, can you give me some tips? How to get the whole picture and how to get the light fully cover the picture? Thank you.

wow.. thanks for the amazing tutorial.. :) if you don't mind me asking,when i paint sometimes the paper looks like its been peeled out,is it the paper? or i am doing it wrong? :(

It sounds like a combination of too much water, too hard brushes, too much "scrubbing", and low quality or non-watercolour paper. :) Is any of those possible?

:iconpreethi9691:
preethi9691 Featured By Owner May 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i think i used too much water on the wet paper.. :hmm: should i wait for it to dry to add the next layer?

Gold-Seven Featured By Owner May 14, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Really good watercolour paper should be able to handle pretty much everything, apart from wet scrubbing with bristly brushes. Whether you apply paint to wet or dry areas is completely up to you and your technique. Wet-into-wet requires paper being able to cope with a certain degree of wetness.

May I ask a question? When you say that you shouldn't have so many whites when other areas are already finished, do you mean that you should lay down the colours in each area first before moving onto shading? Because at first I thought that finished meant dry but then I couldn't see how all the areas could be painted before some of them had dried.
Reply
:icongold-seven:
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I'm not quite sure what you mean. You prevent the whites by laying down a base colour first, very lightly, and then you go on after it's dried. You can add multiple layers everywhere, and some effects are done with wet into wet, others with wet into dry.

I'm sorry, I'm not very good at explaining things. You have answered my question, however. Thank you very much :)

Your lineart trick is pretty neat! With your old printer, did you only work in A4 and below sizes, or did you have a way to work bigger while preserving your lineart?
Reply
:icongold-seven:
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I usually had the lineart done on the copyshop. Up until 2008, I think, I always worked in A4.

Hi! I just wanted to know if the heat of the laser printer, and the way the paper folds while it's being printed affects the watercolor paper. I heard that watercolor paper shouldn't be rolled but it doesn't seem to affect your paintings.

Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
The heat of the laser printer did cause the glue on the end of it to smear, yes - I now work with my own A3 inkjet, an Epson stylus photo R2880 :)
