How to Master Water Control

In this video, I show you how what you can do to FINALLY master water control and rein in your watercolors! I am swatching Holbein's Neutral Tint which is a beautiful transparent shadow color. The exercises I show you in this video are not only great for getting to know your colors, but also provide excellent practice for mastering water control. If you are a beginner this is the perfect place to get started with watercolor botanical painting! By doing these exercises you learn how to create variation in tone without worrying about creating a complex botanical painting. Mastering water control is the top challenge that my watercolor students encounter while learning. For this reason I suggest you use the paper that you will be creating your botanical paintings on, as with practice water control will come to you without even having to think about it, so you can focus on the JOY of watercolor!
