How to Make a Geometric Watercolor Painting
What you'll need:
- watercolor paper
- watercolor paints (or markers or watercolor pencils if you prefer)
- paint brush or aqua brush
- pencil (use a 6H pencil to leave lighter lines)
Thanks to GDJ for this design. You can download it from the source here.
With Rapid Resizer, I resized it to fit across four regular sized printer sheets of paper. I cut the borders off of the sides and taped them together to make the pattern.
Then I taped the stencil to a window and taped the watercolor page on top. This is a simple way to trace a design, just be sure to use tape that won't rip your watercolor paper!
Once my geometric design was transferred I used watercolor paint to fill in the shapes. It might help to practice painting some shapes on another piece of paper first to be sure you are using a brush and the amount of water that works for you.
