You’re gonna want to SAVE this tutorial for later! These are the two most basic watercolor techniques you need to know!
Wet on Dry: this means the paint is wet but the paper is dry. You’ll get very precise brushstrokes this way- necessary for details!
Wet on Wet: this means the paint is wet AND the paper is wet! Use clean, clear, water for a light coat. Not so much water that your paper will buckle, but just enough so the water will absorb into the top layer. (Check out my tutorial called “The Perfect Amount of Water,” for more help!) Then, drop wet paint onto the wet surface and let it blossom!
