No Line Watercoloring Tips:

  • Start in the darker areas first and work toward the lighter areas

  • It takes more than one layering of the colors

  • It takes time to master the technique don't give up!

  • Layer your colors together when applying your pencils

  • Remember Rome wasn't built in a day!

  • Keep your brush moist not soaking wet (water control is important)

  • Everything is fixable

  • Have fun

  • Tipping is important (don't know what I mean watch the video)

  • It's important to dry the piece between layers

  • This is not a one time pass of the pigment process it take multiple layers of colors to get what you want.

  • values are key and probably one of the most important things

  • Everyone starts somewhere!
