Meet artist Mary P. Murphy, who starts by walking you through the tools you need to complete your project, a watercolor floral still life, including brushes, paper and paint. Then she revisits some basic techniques from the class "Startup Library: Painting With Watercolors," and key tips for mixing colors.
Start your project as Mary shows you how to make a great composition and transfer it to paper. Once your drawing is complete, get started on the underpainting. You'll see how transparent layers and masking fluid will make your painting shine!
Start working on depicting cloth with watercolor. It might seem tricky, but Mary guides you step by step. Follow along as she shows you how to develop realistic textures, and paint shadows in layers to give your fabric a flowing, folded look.
