Ahhh I just love these colours *-* How all these colours blend so nicely, how do you do that? Do you wet the paper first before applying colour? Sorry I'm still a watercolour n00b and I just can't seem to figure it out haha xD
it's kind of hard for me to explain my process because it's more or less intuitive at this point! The secret to watercolor is lots and lots of layers, and knowing the right water-to-pigment ratio whenever you're applying color. I'll wet the paper in a certain area if I want the color to be lighter and more spread out.
Haha, I understand that, I was just wondering The problem with my watercolours is that when I apply new layers the edge of the painted area (I don't really know how to explain better) gets this hard edge, a hard line that isn't really visible until it's dried up and I think it's really ugly But for some reason I can't prevent it, so that's what I was wondering about! I don't see these edges in your paintings, so I was hoping you'd know how to prevent them
You can actually make those go away by taking just water on your brush and gently scrubbing at the edges, and then dabbing at the water at the edge with a paper towel till the area is dry. That should soften them up!
Ohh, I think theres sill one by the airport that exists to lull visters into a false sense of security that Ireland is actually a nice place... & then they leave the airport with it's chance to escape & are sorely disappointed by rain, so much rain, & no lovely warm drinks to warm them up after being in said rain
