Brienne Brown shares her approach to painting with watercolor in this quick tip for beginners.
Watercolor Tip: Be Adaptable
“I start out letting watercolor do what it wants to do in the beginning,” says Brienne Brown. “I call it ‘slightly controlled chaos.’ It’s best to be adaptable with this medium. I always start out with a plan, and with a value study, but if the watercolor is looking better than my plan, then I let it go.
“I start out wetter, looser, and with more color. As more layers go down, then darks go in and details come in. Then it is a personal choice on how detailed you want the work to be.”
