Watercolor Class Exercise

Marzieh prepared a simple yet interesting and beneficial exercise in order to motivate you to combine a couple of techniques from her watercolor class.

Please follow the below instructions:

1. Tape your paper down to a table or a board. So it does not warp when your paper gets dry at the end of the project. 
2. Prepare 3-4 different colours/shades in your palette. (I was inspired by the Fall leaves colours for this project.) Use a lot of water in order to decrease the pigmentation of your paint. (We need very watery colours for this stage.)
3. Wet your paper using a wide flat brush or a spray.
4. Pick a big round brush, choose a colour from your palette and rub the paint on the paper. As the paper is wet the paint starts to bleed, mix and spread out. (wet on wet technique) 
5. Cover your paper completely with paint. Use all the colours and shades that you have mixed in your palette. 
6. Before the paint gets dry on the paper, use some salt on the spots that you like.
