Watercolor Fun for Beginners : Gradients

This summer I am sharing THIRTY videos all about learning how to use watercolor. Subscribe on YouTube here. They are perfect for all ages, and make a great family activity or something to keep kids busy for a few minutes so you can think your own uninterrupted thoughts for a bit 🙂

Find the whole series here.

Today’s video is about how to make our colors go from more saturated (more paint) to less saturated (more water). We’re going to add more and more water to make the paint more transparent. Starting with very saturated color for the first rectangle, add more water only (no more paint!) until the color is extremely light. All the details are in the video below. Have so much fun!
