5 Beginning Watercolor Mistakes

There are tons of videos on YouTube about painting, and just about anything you what.  This one is a nice short video demonstrating some the mistakes beginning watercolor artists make when they first start painting.  I talked about some of them in my video last week, but this one adds a few more tips and gives a demonstration.

Watercolor is an interesting medium.  It can be fast at one moment and then slow the next moment.  There’s a lot of planning involved.  Where are things going to be placed?  What is the color going to be?  It’s easier to change these things in oil or acrylic because you can just paint over them, but that doesn’t work so well in watercolor.
