Watercolor Painting, My Way: Magnolias: L1
Author: Rod Webb, Associate Editor
|I paint indoors, working from photographs taken with my digital camera and displayed on the computer monitor while I am painting.
Here is a close-up shot of one of the Magnolias growing in my garden.
|Several photos were taken. This one displays the mottled bark and greenish fungi coloring on the surface.|
|Before I forget, here is a line drawing image available for download if you would like to follow along with my painting!
Click on the image to download and save to your hard disk.
|The sketch is transferred to watercolor paper using either:
1. Graphite transfer paper
2. Soft lead pencil rubbed on back of sketch.
We are now ready to start our painting - enjoy!
