Q. Could you share us your favorite technique?

A. Yes, it’s “Bleeding” and “Gradation”.

I often add bleeding to my artwork. Not only it creates a soft, gentle atmosphere, but I also love the one-time, accidental bleeds.
Moreover, I like to make use of the white color of the base of watercolor paper. I think it makes my artwork brighter.

  • Bleeding (1)

    Stretch the watercolor paper on a board with a masking tape.
    Wet the entire paper with water.
    This process will make the bleeding easier.

  • Bleeding (2)

    I leave the two following parts unpainted, where the light hits, and the clouds in the sky.
    By leaving the white base color of the watercolor paper, I think the pure white comes out.
    Watercolors can be redone in some areas, so the trick is to paint with all your heart without fear of failure.

  • Gradation (1)

    Let’s paint the first color.
    Here I use yellow-green.

  • Gradation (2)

    Before the yellow-green dries, paint on the second color, green.
    When layering the green, the trick is not to painting overall.
    Leave some yellow-green parts so that you can express nice gradations.
