Step-by-steps from the Manual
These two pieces are my attempts to follow the instructions of Barry Herniman (link) in the watercolor manual.
What did I learn?
First, he puts the layer of washes all over the paper. He uses very strong colors and mixes them on paper. Somehow (this is secret for me) he avoids mud. He adds colors to select objects as the second layer (barns, wooden or stone structures of the buildings). And he outlines the details as the third layer. So simple and so beautiful. As it turns in his paintings, at least)).
My next book waiting is J.Dobbie's "Making Color Sing" and and I am anticipating the pleasure))
