Lemon still life Watercolor Demo by Mr. Dressler
Create a monochromatic watercolor painting that demonstrates multiple glazed layers of paint and range of tonality.
Using a flat brush and a single color, create multiple GLAZED layers of shapes. When overlapping a new layer, be sure that the previous is dry. Use a hair dryer between applications if needed. Control the saturation of paint by considering the ratio of water to paint before applying to paper.
The final result should be multiple overlapping forms that create a range of shapes and tonality.
