Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Wet on Wet
I wet the paper with clear water and I start layering colors.
Step 2: Wet on Dry
When watercolors dried, I apply new layers of paint. This will help for increasing the saturation of colors.
Step 3: Orange and Red
Finally I add red and orange tones for reacreating the sun reflections.
Step 4: White Gouache
Once paint dried I complete reflections with with gouache and I add some watercolor strokes over the gouache (for increasing the contrast).
Step 5: Black Paint
Once paint dried again, I paint the characters and the lamp with black watercolor.
Step 6: White Gel Pen
With white gel pen I add other reflections and that's it! :)
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. For the full process please watch the video!
