Wet & Wonderful
A great way to learn how to paint with watercolor is to paint wet-in-wet. This is a great way to loosen up and reap the rewards of your painting partner. The wet paint is laid on wet or damp paper, the colours flow and blend into one another in beautiful, unexpected ways, creating a diffused effect. Being able to predict the results you're going to get working wet-on-wet takes practice, but as this technique can produce spectacular, lively paintings and it's well worth experimenting with it.
