Tuesday's Tips and Techniques for Watercolor Painting

Today's Tip:
Paint your lightest light next to your darkest dark.

While painting this quick little watercolor study, this little tip kept running through my mind, so I thought I would share it with you today.

If your lightest light is next to your darkest dark, it will create a more dramatic effect on your center of interest.

With watercolor painting, the white of the paper is your white.  The dark rocks make the rushing white water pop in this little study.
