A Word From the Author:
"The goal of this book is to explain the basic techniques that will help you become a better painter. Then you will follow several step-by-step demonstrations, which will put those miles on your brush. Although the subjects of this book are flowers and leaves, the lessons and techniques you will learn can be adapted to fit any other subject. You will start with simple forms and tips and build from there. More complex forms are really just several simple forms grouped together, so it’s not so hard after all! We’ll even learn ways to control and correct watercolor, but don’t tell the uninitiated that it’s not the hardest medium after all. Just let them be awed that you can handle watercolor. You will also explore a variety of ways to paint and the materials that will help you create art from the images in your mind." — Judy Eaton

Set Off Your Edges with Dark Backgrounds
Painting a dark background with both hard and soft edges will set off a vibrant or light-colored center of interest. It’s also a good way to add interest and depth to the composition by making the negative space more exciting.
Since you must keep the edges of the dark paint wet, you need to include lines in the drawing to give yourself places to stop. Think about where to change colors before you paint. If one edge is drying too quickly while you work on another, wet it with water, eliminating any hard lines. Let dry, re-wet and repaint later. This technique sounds complicated, but it’s really quite simple and forgiving.
Think about how the color flows as you paint. It’s very important to continue a particular color as it goes under the stem, vide or leaf.
The more often you begin a color change on one side of a shape and continue it to the other side, the more unified and interesting your background will be. Try to have lots of color variety in paint edges. You can re-wet any edges that don’t satisfy you and paint them again. A touch of another color along the soft edge adds to the excitement, and you can always add this by simply re-wetting. These books are presented in PDF format and are viewable on both MACs and PCs with Adobe Acrobat, a free program.
