“Lady Amethyst” Step 4 Watercolor Demo


It’s All In The Details


In the above photo, I am working with a “rigger” brush using neutralized colors already on my palette. The goal is to create an illusion of the tiny veins in the iris. I purpose to work in a delicate, random way to avoid  hard-edged, dutifully drawn-on-lines with dry paint 😮


Above is the finished effect achieved by adding water carefully, while still damp, to soften the lines without distubing the previous washes.

Remember, a little detail goes along way. Don’t overexplain and turn the viewer away with too much information.

So, really


It’s All In


Simplifying The Details
