Watercolor technique: Pulling in colour: When you apply a dry, more saturated stroke, you can pull from that stroke with just water. This watercolor technique is a great way to show form and indicate a light source or edge. Apply a stroke using very little water and more pigment.
Watercolor technique: Scumbling: Simply lay in semi-wet strokes of paint in watercolour. As you apply more color, be careful to keep adding water so the colours blend and stay soft. It can be easy to overwork and produce a muddy look, so less is more.
