Linda Baker creates complicated watercolor paintings in a straightforward way in her first art instruction DVD. She starts with a roadmap that allows her to play with her favorite watercolor techniques to create texture and depth in her piece.
Baker begins with sketches and thumbnails where she makes her value pattern decisions. She transfers her drawing onto the page and begins her masking process. Masking is a large part of Baker's process and it allows her to create clean crisp edges without the painstaking effort of carefully painting in each watercolor line.
Baker's art lessons are really about texture. Youll use different watercolor texture techniques in each of four distinct layers in your still life, and the painting techniques you learn will add excitement to portraits, landscapes, florals, and more.
Baker doesnt dwell on mistakes - youll learn to make the best of what you get. Youll integrate layers by softening masked edges and blend colors with tilting and a spray bottle. Baker will teach you how to paint with a plan so that once the thinking is done, you can play with color, texture, and paint.
