A watercolor wash is usually used when you do a background or a large area. It can be done with one color or many. It is achieved when you cover a large surface with a watery mixture of your paint.
Here is a link to the supplies used in this video.
- Wash brush
- Round brush size 8
- pencil, any is fine!
- Paper: I use arches 140lb cold press block
- If you don’t have a block you’ll need masking tape
- Winsor Red
- French Ultramarine (Blue)
- water - from the tap is perfect!
