TOP 10 WATERCOLOR PAINTING MISTAKE BEGINNERS DO..!!

Hello, here’s my next blog out TOP 10 WATERCOLOR PAINTING MISTAKE BEGINNERS DO..!! You should avoid this mistakes while doing it.

In this blog I will tell about the common TOP 10 WATERCOLOR PAINTING MISTAKE BEGINNERS DO..!!  watercolor painting mistakes beginners do. Watercolor artist often makes that would cause him, or her, to feel the medium is difficult.

What are these watercolor painting mistakes students make when painting with watercolors?

Here is the list of  TOP 10 WATERCOLOR PAINTING MISTAKE BEGINNERS DO..!! have come up with after reviewing the common problems.

 

01. TOO MUCH WATER.

If you discover you can’t mix a robust color and your watercolors always look too light and washed out. Then you are putting too much water in your mixes.

Have a look at where the excess water is entering your mixes and you will be well on the way to correcting this. You could be washing your brush whenever before you choose up more color when it’s not necessary.

02. INSUFFICIENT WATERCOLOR PAINTING WASHES.

If you try to do a wash over a large area of your painting with a brush with very little paint in it you will not end up with nice clean watercolor washes. The big washes should usually be through with a totally loaded brush – one which can drip if head vertically with the purpose down.

03. PAINTING INTO DAMP PAPER WITH A TOO WET A BRUSH.

This is a very common watercolor painting mistake. Painting into a humid (where the shine has left the watercolor paper) wash is dangerous because it can cause watercolor mud to develop but there are times when doing so can create just the effect you want. The trick is to have less water in your brush than on your paper and you will be fine as long as you do not continue to fix!!

04. NOT WAITING TILL A WASH IS TOTALLY DRY BEFORE LAYING A GLAZE OVER THE TOP OF IT.

This is a very common one. Not only should the surface of your paint be dry but the paper below must be thoroughly dry also. Otherwise as soon as you wet the surface with your glaze you risk disturbing the wash underneath as it can quickly re-liquefy due to the inherent dampness of the paper below.

05. POOR QUALITY PAPER.

Some watercolor papers are just too absorbent acting like blotting paper. They are not only false economy as you will not be able to produce nice work on them but they actually hinder you from learning how to do nice clean washes. A wash must be able to flow down the paper. Paper like that made by Arches and Saunders Waterford are very good.

06. POOR QUALITY WATERCOLOR BRUSHES.

Round watercolor brushes got to hold many water and pigment, and have a enough (but not too much) spring that their hairs recover to a pleasant point when the wet brush is tapped on the side of your water container. If the larger brushes don’t have a nice point it will increase the frequency with which you have to move down to a smaller brush which wastes valuable time. A good watercolor brush allows you to use if for extended when painting before there’s a requirement to select up a smaller brush.

07. USING A WRONG SIZED BRUSH FOR THE SHAPE BEING PAINTED.

A very small brush will take too long and too many brush strokes to cover a large area, this will lead to a rough look to your watercolor paintings. While overlarge a brush used for alittle shape will make it too difficult to guage its water content and may cause the under painting being washed away.

08. NOT PRE-MIXING YOUR STARTING WATERCOLOR COLORS.

Before starting your under painting an honest practice is to pre-mix the most colors you’ll need for your wet into wet wash. Otherwise if you start painting with your first color and then have to quickly mix your second and then your third you will not end up with a nice clean wash because the first one will dry too fast. Time may be a vital factor “once you begin your watercolor painting” so why waste it mixing colors.

09. TRYING TO PAINT TOO LARGE TOO SOON.

If you are just starting out with watercolors then I suggest you paint small to begin with about 16th (approx 19 cm x 14cm) or 8th sheet size (approx 28.5cm x 19 cm). Then build up to larger sizes as you get comfortable with the smaller. Some people find they like to color small while others prefer larger work.

10. BEFORE STARTING TO PAINT THINK ABOUT HOW TO DO.

If you just start painting without a plan of attack you could find yourself running into difficulties which could have been avoided with some forethought. You may have needed to mask an area, painted it in a difference sequence, etc.
