Water color paints for artists

It is better to do preliminary drawing on an additional sheet of paper (I used office leaf), and then to transfer not to injure a surface of a water color leaf.
This paper very dense and practically is not jarred on even from repeated smachivaniye at all by water therefore I did not fix a leaf at all.
After transfer of drawing, we apply water on a background by means of a soft flat brush, trying not to concern a bird and flowers (especially flowers — they surely have to remain white practically before completion of work).
Yet water did not dry, we apply color spots on a damp surface. We use mixes green, ochre, an ultramarine and a little violet-red. On cotton paper paint spreads surprisingly softly, without leaving spots and potyok. Our purpose — to achieve very indistinct and, at the same time, a background, various on color.

So far a paint layer fresh, we apply with a small brush alcohol drops on a background that will give us additional effect in the form of small round white specks — as spots of sunlight.

Let's not forget about the main hero of our drawing. For a bird we use ochre red, iron oxide light-red and again green, ochre and cobalt blue. If it is necessary to utemnit a background round a bird, previously we apply water on the right place, and only then we concern background paint — on cotton paper paint remarkably spreads, irrespective of when to you took in head to humidify a leaf. Also we do not forget about "spots of sunlight" — we put alcohol specks on a background that it beautifully flickered.

We start "strengthening" a background in some places, without forgetting to humidify a leaf surface thus. In parallel very carefully we concern also flowers — for them we use ochre mix from the violet-red.

Let's not forget about shadows on a birdie. Carefully we watch that the birdie in places was more dark than a background, and in places the background is more dark than a birdie.
