Tuesday's Tips and Techniques for Watercolor Painting
Whatever object you're painting ... don't stop just before you get to the edge of the painting.
Lines, objects, tree limbs can be painted right off the edge of the painting.
The sad tree on the right has been painted with limbs that stop well before getting to the edge of the painting.
The tree on the left has limbs that extend off the top and side of the paper. This is a happy tree, a more interesting tree.
This technique can be applied to all sorts of objects. It's okay to paint beyond the edge.
