Textures in Watercolor

This lesson is more visual than anything else so use the link to the picture page to see the textures and the explainations on how to create them. These are only a few to get you started try using them in combination to get the effects you want, you are only limited by your imagination so don't be afraid to try something new which is another reason I tell you to have test paper or watercolor cards handy to try out something new before applying it to your "masterpiece".

Most important to remember is to watch how much water is in your brush or sponge, what ever you are using, if it is suppose to be textured and it is too filled in it could be that you had too much water or you were pressing too hard, many things require a light touch as well as little water.

Have fun and try out different things to see if you can come up with your own textures.
