💦Comment words starting with 'M' (1 per comment!) MENTOR Motivation 🌟Hey, y'all! Kate here of @paintingperrydise Thrilled to be participating in Aaria's Mentor Motivation series over @surelysimplechallenge This week's theme is NATURE!!
♢♢♢Ever since childhood, art and the outdoors have been two of my main passions. Watercolors offer a way to explore those passions together. Today we start off the week with MOUNTAINS! •
♢♢♢To create the sunset first, I start with bold blue of your choice, adding water to pull lighter blue down the page. Next, start with a peachy color at your horizon line and pull up towards the light blue, just until they touch. If you blend too much at this stage, the colors will become muddy. Let your sky dry COMPLETELY I'll layer distant mountains first and move lower on the page to create depth. Notice each mountain section grows darker with each layer. Note: make sure each mountain range is completely dry before beginning the next layer.
♢♢♢This week we'll explore watercolors, masking fluid, line drawings with ink pens, values of watercolor, and landscapes!
♢♢♢Supplies: Arches 140lb cold pressed paper, Shinhan Premium watercolors (cerulean blue, cadmium yellow orange, opera, indigo), and Master's Touch Round, size 24 brush
