If you’re looking for some of the best watercolor flower painting ideas for beginners, you’ve come to the right place. Watercolor painting is a great creative outlet.
If you’re new to watercolor, here are a few of my favorite tips for getting started. Make sure you use high-quality paint, paper, and brushes.
When painting, start with your light colors first and work your way towards the dark colors. You’ll also want to pay attention to your water to paint ratio.
You don’t want too much water because your colors will be too light. However, you also don’t want too little water, because your colors will be too thick and won’t apply to the paper properly.
Another step that some beginners skip is letting their paint dry between layers if you don’t want your colors to blend or bleed into each other.
