VIDEO: How to Paint Flowers with Watercolors (Wet-into-wet Technique)

By admin in Art Tutorials > Video Tutorials

In today’s video, watercolor painter Barbara Nechis demonstrates how to paint flowers using a wet-into-wet method.

As you’ll see in the clip below, she starts by thoroughly (yet carefully) re-wetting her paper, to ensure that an even amount of water is spread over the entire painting. Some of the paint that she put down earlier spreads slightly, but since that’s the style, it only adds to the painting.
