'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau
|Watercolors By Andrea Burke||
This is such a fun style to paint. Begin with sketch and apply masking to save the whites. Then wet both sides of paper and work from middle out - with yellow, gold, coral, and blues. Dry thoroughly then apply shadows. Then the greens - then the details of the house. Remove masking and splash in flowers. Last step is to wet areas and shave watercolor pencils into them - voila! My husband does not like the pinks - says they don't belong there!!! I think they are fun!!!!
