Water Color Tutorial

sketch for "Luthien" 

I've been asked to do a tutorial and I've been meaning to but get carried away painting and forget to take pictures! This time I kept my phone in the studio so I could snap pictures as I worked.
Starting to add leaves to the background, leaving some areas white

Adding a wash of yellow ocher

A wash of blue in the sky

Working on the flowing gown, layering blue and leaving white areas for highlights. No layering of colors here as I wanted a clear bright blue.

Getting there! Adding a layer of purples and greens over the yellow ocher wash

Finished painting!
