Progressive watercoloring is a technique that involves the layering of translucent pigment to create a gradient effect that adds depth and style to your work. In this class, designer and illustrator Melissa Lee will take you step-by-step through the simple and easy process, so that you, too, can implement the technique into your next painting.
Progressive watercoloring is a fairly traditional technique, in that it really utilizes the translucent quality of watercolors, but it can also be used to give your work a contemporary, stylized flair.
To get into the spirit of the season, Melissa will be showing you how she created the Halloween-themed painting below. This lesson is short and sweet, and you’ll leave it with one more fun technique to add to your skillset!
