How to Paint a Fall Scenery with only ONE Color // Monochromatic Watercolor // Art Journal Thursday

  • Published on Nov 1, 2018
  • Hey guys! In today's video I will show you how to paint a fall scenery step by step for beginners using only one color of my watercolor set! I will show you a monochrome painting technique how you can create beautiful art using only one color! It was actually my very first trying it out, so I still need to do lots of watercolor and monochromatic studies, but it's a great way to learn about the different values and the contrast between them to achieve an interesting artwork! I really hope you enjoy it and find it helpful!

    it killed me to see her using so much paint in the first part. it may be tube but you still dont need to make it that concentrated. The main property is of watercolor is using water, sorry this is not a hate but that really bugged me.

    This inspires me to try it myself! I read an article about watercolor painting tips and one of them was to use water for changes in values rather than more paint. I didn't get it but this video helped me understand that less water makes a darker value while more water makes a light value.

    For me that is not a problem at all to paint eith only one watercolor. Why you may ask? Three months ago i bought only one watercolor tube because I didn't have enough money, it was grass green. So for 3 months I painted with only one shade, now I have 8 colors so it's not problem anymore. But yeah hahahhaha
