Painting Rocks Demo 22nd June


Caroline showed several photos from her sketchbook. Make dark and shadow shapes first, and then washes of colour after light. You can use sandpaper on the rock for surface (NB Put shapes in first with a light pencil).

She mixes gouache with the watercolour to make some colours more opaque.

Don’t over-water the paint, as it could affect your paper. Caroline then coloured the washes green, then went over them with red to tone them down, especially for the shadows.
