Animals #7 – Watercolor Painting of a Dog named Rosie
Watercolor demo by Yong Chen. Many people asked me how to start a watercolor painting. Is it always beginning with light to dark? With this demonstration, I want to share this approach: start from a composition, and in a good value composition that has large light areas and dark areas, broadly add the colors in these areas. After laying the big design for the painting, gradually add the details.
