Watercolor Walkthrough Part 2 by Laitma Watercolor Walkthrough Part 2 by Laitma
Th-Thank you guys for your great feedback on part 1! I hope this walkthrough can continue to be useful, and sorry it's taking so long. I have a lot more material than I thought I would, so there's a final part still to come. Ahhh!
And to credit where it's due: Nearly everything I know about traditional art I learned from :iconprogo:. I just hope to be able to pass on this knowledge, since a lot of it seems to be stuff most people don't cover in tutorials but that I find to be really useful--y'know, common-sense tips that some of us (like me) will always be lacking in, like not rubbing wet paper. C':>
Thanks for everything, ~progo~ ;c;
Enjoy!

I've actually stopped using masking fluid since I made this tutorial; it's really hard to control the edges of the fluid and they also make for very hard edges. Hahahahah this tutorial is kinda out of date, sorry... but some people still find it useful, s-so... u_u

The fine-tip paintbrush was great for me for doing tiny details and having a lot of control, but as I've been working with my watercolors I've been slowly learning to use larger and larger brushes--these brushes still come to a very fine point so I can do my details, but they are tougher to control. But you can hold more water this way and get more even washes! So, it's a tradeoff, but for starters I think a smaller brush is a lot easier while you're still getting the hang of it. xD
