Watercolor Painting for Beginners : How to Mix Colors for Watercolor Painting


JOHN R. JUNGER: Watercolor painting is aptly
name because it is an amalgam of water and color, and let’s see what we could do with
it. If I took a brush and wet it, open my paints and just look what I’m doing. Now,
you see this? This is scrap paper. I always test what I’m doing on scrap paper. Now, this
is called a flat wash because when it dries, it’s going to be one flat color from beginning
to end. Now, a lot of people use that because it’s very nice. Now again, you notice I test
my color. This is called the graded wash. Now, it looks just like a flat wash but what
I could do is take another color if I wish and grade it into that. So, that is no longer
flat wash, but it becomes a graded wash.
