Gourds: Wet in Wet Technique (beginner tutorial)

Hi friends! This tutorial got mixed reviews and I can see why, it took me way longer than I had hoped to teach it. And looking at the end result I would have had a more refined painting after almost an hour. However, this is a beginner tutorial and I don’t like to rush techniques in my beginner tutorials. I also like to use student grade paints in my beginner tutorials so I can show you how to overcome some of the issues you might face when attempting it for the first time with student grade supplies.

If you are not a beginner and the finished painting doesn’t look good to you I suggest you pass on this one and wait for my more advanced Friday livestream paintings. I don’t mind:) I want to make sure beginners have tutorials with some gentle guidance as they work through their paintings for the first time. I hope you understand:) So, with that disclaimer out-of-the-way, let’s paint! This is a real-time lesson so you can paint along.

Supplies:

FYI I will be reviewing the set of 48 Mungyo watercolor paints that I used in today’s tutorial on Saturday. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
