This is the test of transparency and granulation of those watercolors. Unless for the white, they are all transparent and bright.

The first four colors (watercolor tubes) are also granulated. Awesome!

Step 3: Base Colors

For test those watercolors I've prepared a simple illustration.

I've started painting wet on wet with very diluited colors, and then I added some shadows.

Step 4: Mushroom Cap
