Tuesday's Tips and Techniques for Watercolor Painting

Sunset Blend 

Creating a sunset in watercolor is magical.

The lovely blue sky that fades to a glowing yellow setting sun.

Add a single swipe of Primary Red Magenta in between your blue paint and your yellow watercolor paint to avoid creating green in your sky.

The red will mix with the blue to make a red-violet.
The red will mix with the yellow to create an orange.

This little trick will help you create that special glow at sunset.
