How to Paint Rocks in Watercolors

L_Waterfall_watercolors_da_10-3-2012

Nature Scene

I recently came across a new way to paint rocks with watercolors by watching the video by Terry Harrison. I gave it a try and it work out very well. This painting, focused primarily on the rocks,  was my first attempt.

    • I hope so, I just got to mange that card on the paper a little better. I was a bit clumpy and got paint in various spots, now hidden by the trees and grass, but also on the bottom so I signed my name through it.
      Thanks Andro!

  10. I don’t think there is any way that I could do water colors. They just aren’t forgiving enough for me and I could never cover my mistakes.
    These look great. Fantastic for a first try.

    • Go from light to dark when painting with watercolors, Bo. If you make a mistake you can cover it up with a darker shade. Also, but your paper down to smaller sizes to paint on while you practice so you don’t feel like you’ve wasted much if it comes out unsatisfactory to you.
      Thanks Bo! xx
