Woods in Fall

Masking and Sponging Watercolor Techniques

Woods in Fall (Sponging and Masking)

This lesson (for beginner or intermediate level students) uses masking tape and masking fluid, as well as sponging with a small piece of natural sponge. If you're new to sponging, check out the sponging basics video https://youtu.be/0AkvY0BsWl8 for a little practice first.

Your painting doesn't have to look like mine - fall has lots of lovely colors. You could add red or yellow flowers, make your trees different colors - you're only limited by your imagination.

Happy Painting.

Hi, I'm Deb Watson.

My story is simple. I loved creating art from childhood, but was discouraged from pursuing art by my parents. So, I became a nurse, but kept painting.

I knew nothing about art, but taught myself over time and became a very successful artist, with hundreds of awards. Although my art and how to paint techniques are well known (in over a dozen books and online), I'm just a down to earth person.

I've always enjoyed teaching others how to paint with watercolor - sharing the joy!

Join me in your own personal journey into painting. My online lessons and zoom classes will teach you how to see and paint like an artist. No matter what your favorite subject is, you'll find it here - or email me your suggestions and I'll include a class in the future.

Happy Painting.
