Today, as one of our $1 watercolor projects, I drew Sandstreet Beach, a local attraction.
The process of painting, Sandstreet Beach
As always, the sea is the easiest to sketch.
First, starting with a light color, express the sky using the wet on wet technique. Wet-on-Wet Technique is to paint over wet paper and then induce different colors to shine through.
Then, the beach part is colored to express the sand and then sprayed with a water spray.
Lightly paint the rest of the area except for the sky and beach.
Add accents using a thin brush with a dark color.
To express the flowing water, put a soft paint on the brush, drain the water once, and then sweep it away quickly.
It also sweeps over small houses that are reflected in the water.
Use white acrylic to express the sky with a brush. I tried to express a cloud that moves quickly with the wind like a thread.
As a final step, I add the darkest shades and shadows in every corner. In this case, the wet-on-dry technique of watercolor is used. The wet-on-dry technique is to color the paper while it is dry. Wet-on-wet is also known as wet technique, while wet-on-dry technique is also called dry technique.
After completion, sign.
