|"Wisteria at Mohonk" 11x14 watercolor by Mira Fink|
Here is a demonstration on the process of creating the painting above, "Wisteria at Mohonk". Please let me know if this is helpful and please comment and subscribe to the blog on the right if you want to be notified of future posts like this.
After drawing the image onto my watercolor paper, I applied the first washes using wet on wet technique (see below). This means that I made the paper wet and then added the colors so they would blend together. This first layer will establish the lightest washes. I didn't want all the background color to flow into the gazebo top, so I painted around this triangular area.
