Oh my gosh, this colour scheme is absolutely gorgeous. I love the little details as well -- the markings on the wood and the stitches of the quilt.

This is amazing, water colours are, in my experience, one of the hardest mediums to master; and yet you've really gone above and beyond!

I real want to improve my water colour skills, would you be able to give me and handy tips and tricks to make it look this good?
Reply
:iconzmeess:
zmeess Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012
I doubt I should be the one giving people lessons since I am still learning myself, but if I can be of any help, just ask what specifically you'd like to know. I'll try my best to answer. c:

Thank you! Well I was mostly wondering how you manage to keep your colours separate and crisp whilst keeping the consistency of the colour?

zmeess Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012
Well, this is kind of a tricky question. It's just all about trying to apply the paint fast enough not to let it dry before I cover the entire area, and carefully enough not to cross the pencil lines. Which is still quite difficult to me and, as I suppose, comes with practise. Preparing the needed mix of watercolours in the palette beforehand helps save the time, though. Also, painting the lighter shades first and then the darker ones makes less mess and allows you to sweep some mistakes under the carpet. You can also use art masking fluid, it is really helpful if you want to paint a particularly large part of your work with seamless wash without overpainting small details. I have a Daler Rowney one, and it would be perfect if it didn't leave orange marks after removing from paper.

I hope this rambling might somehow help. Don't hesitate to ask anything again, as I'm sure I did a terrible job at explaining. oтz
Good luck with your watercolours!

My art teacher tells me not to use masking fluid too much of I might get addicted to it.

Thank you for the tip! You might get a message from me another time. Thank you again!

Can't disagree with your art teacher. But it is not that bad when it's dosed. ;>
