I have just started putting together some demonstrations and articles for beginner watercolour artists. Basically it will be like a beginners guide to watercolour and will mainly cover the topics I tackle with my students in about the first 6 weeks of class.
The first demonstration uses only two colors, so the student can concentrate more on technique rather than color mixing.
It is one of the very first paintings I have my new students do. It teaches them some useful skills and hopefully gives them a little painting to take home. It is usually painted on 1/16th sheet.
Here is a picture of the finished watercolor painting:
Future articles and demonstrations will include color mixing, painting rocks, painting trees, different edges you can paint with a round watercolor brush (already done), how to use a spray bottle, how to paint with splatter, using masking and candle wax, etc
