The Work Flow of My Watercolour Painting Process
My watercolour painting usually follows a simple work flow.
First I would select the subject matter to be painted and have some brainstorming on the theme, composition and moral meaning, if there’s meant to be.
For any watercolor painting, I would select the paper, mount it onto a wooden frame, pre-stretch the watercolour paper, if possible, then adjust the height and angle of the easel so that I will be comfortable during the long process of painting, arrange the settings around me to facilitate the ease of my hours long painting process. I would always keep the paints, the palette, brushes and a fresh bucket of water ready on the right hand side of my seat.
My painting sequence always start from top to bottom, from left to right, from light colours to darker colours, from far scenes to nearer scenes, layer to layer.
