Tropical fish and watercolour techniques


 We first did a set of x6 circles and filled them with different water colour techniques.

  1. wet on wet - bleeding
  2. wet on dry 
  3. colour gradation and blending
  4. dry onto wet
  5. blotting with dry tissue
  6. brushmarks

 Then we drew three large fish on watercolour paper. Added smaller fish and corals using references from books on natural forms.

Painted the tropical fish compositions using the watercolour techniques tried out in the first exercise.

Those that finished early did some shell paintings and drawings.
