Watercolour Techniques and Textures: Beginner Artists and Creatives


Welcome back to the Joyous Misfit Blog!


Watercolour art is a favourite of my workshop groups and 1:2:1 sessions, because you can create some really beautiful, atmospheric pieces.


Understanding the basic techniques and how to create texture will give you a foot in the door to creating more complex pieces.


Don’t forget that, while these techniques are great starting points, art is all about expressing your creativity. So play around with different techniques, try different ratios of water to paint to paper, try different types of paper, and learn what works best for you. A great place to start in figuring out if watercolours and for you and what materials you’ll need is on my Art for Beginners blog post.
