Watercolor Painting, My Way!: Rocks: L1/2

Author: Rod Webb, Associate Editor

We will need Raw Sienna and a mix of Burnt Umber with a touch of Ultramarine to darken.

First apply wash over rock of Raw Sienna.

The light will be falling on the top so we need highlights.

Use a well crumpled tissue or paper towel to lift some paint from the top edge. 

A light touch will still leave some texture.

Here, some paint has been lifted, and some texture has been produced.

The top is now a bit drier as the tissue lifted some moisture.

The bottom paint is still wet, so we can continue with some wet-into-wet action!

Using our mix of Burnt Umber and Ultramarine, drop some paint into the wet surface to produce the shadow area.
