Watercolor Flower Tutorial | Mixing colors | Wet to wet technique
 
04:18
In this video, I'm painting a flower using ink, Chinese Watercolor tube paint, and gouache. People mention all the time that they're hesitant to use pure inks, because they're afraid to loose control and mess up the painting. Mixing Inks with gouache or a more solid consistency of watercolor helps to maintain control while still maintaining a fluid effect. Here are the products I'm using: 1. Arches Watercolor Paper https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008N0BC2Y/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=krikey-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B008N0BC2Y&linkId=9f5abacdf1b3314e8218d517f398c829 2. Liquitex Ink Magenta https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00263VTWM/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=krikey-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B00263VTWM&linkId=c5d827cd568f0aac13f718b0112e327b 3.
