Over the years, you have seen Gelatos used in mixed media projects, on various surfaces. Gelatos are water-soluble pigment sticks - you can use them as watercolors as well and the Intro to Watercolor with Gelatos shows you how to.
The kit includes -
- Eight Gelatos® colors
Deluxe Water Brush
Silicone craft tray
14 page booklet showing you how to create floral and gemstone designs and hand lettering using the kit
The other materials I used -
- watercolor paper
Start with a sketch. You can start simple as the design guide will show you.
Rub the Gelatos colors on the silicone craft tray and fill the Deluxe Waterbrush with water.
Add a first wash of color to your drawing.
Remember to leave highlights in your composition. The rim of the ceramic planter is where the light shines the brightest in my painting. I left that space blank as we do not use white paint in watercolors.
Start adding more colors to add depth to the painting. Decide upon a source of light and add shadows to the planter and plants.
Add details to the painted elements but do not overwork the details.
Anchor the planter to the ground by adding a shadow to the side away from the light to finish.
I hope you'll create your own watercolor paintings using the Intro to Watercolor with Gelatos kit!
