Rainbow Watercolor Process by Lucky978 Rainbow Watercolor Process by Lucky978
Hey guys! A lot of people have been asking for this. One of my most faq is how I personally go about doing a watercolor background, and how to keep the edges so clean. Well, there are a thousand ways to do this, but personally I use this method:
1. Lightly sketch out the subject
2. Wet most of the area I want to fill in the background
3. Paint carefully around the subject, and get the background design I want
4. Wait for the background to dry
5. Paint the subject! :D

I don't use any masking fluid or anything like that.
Maybe I'll do a full tutorial sometime. I liked this picture, so I thought I might as well share it.
In the background I have PH martin's concentrated watercolors. They are very bright and vibrant :3

Do you dilute the colors, or drop them right on to the paper? Also what colors of PH do you recommend? I just got a set of rainbows inspired by your work here, but I cannot seem to get the same effect. Requesting tutorial! :)

Your art makes me want to take an art class. I have not taken one in like almost 9 years. Thanks for saying what you use: the PH martin's concentrated watercolors.
