This is my last exercise from the book "Watercolor Tips and Techniques". Do you see it on the book's cover? My favorite lesson. Actually, I bought the book when I saw this painting of Barry Herniman (link), wanted to know how he did the autumn sunlight THAT beautiful.
Now I know. The main word of the lesson is "spattering". Another often used expression "spray with water". And "pour colors". So first you pour, then spray (from right up to left down, getting this sun-blind effect. Next layer is "spattering and blending on paper".
And paper. It can be able to hold all the water layers. Arches could perfectly.
never knew that "step by step" lesson can be so free and unpredictable.
