H2Oh! Botanical Watercolor Lessons for Copic Colorers- Royal Iris

"Royal Iris" a botanical watercolor lesson for Copic students, July 2016 | VanillaArts.com

Water control, color control

H2Oh! classes approach watercolor from a rather unique perspective.

I learned to watercolor first. And my watercolor mindset has greatly influenced the way I use and teach Copic marker classes.

H2Oh! flips that on its head. I teach my intermediate level coloring students to use their Copic skills with watercolor.

The two mediums are very similar. With one exception...

Water control.

In marker, if you want a lighter color, you switch to a lighter marker. In watercolor, you dilute your paint.

How much to dilute... now that's the hard part.

This month we're limiting our color palette in order to concentrate on the strength of our paint. Light green, dark green, light violet, dark violet. It's good practice to see how many colors we can get from just a few tubes of paint.
