Tuesday's Tips and Techniques for Watercolor Painting

No More Outlines in Watercolor

Whether you need to fill in a large space or a small space with watercolor, it is better to fill in most of the area with a large brush then go back and smooth out the edges while the paint is still wet.

If you outline the entire area and then fill in the middle, most likely when the paint dries you will see the outline.

A massive area of watercolor paint, big or small, takes longer to dry than a thin narrow line.

Your outline will dry with a hard edge that will show once you have filled in the interior section.
