3 Watercolor Tips
#1 Place the Darker Tonal Values in the foreground. The background will have paler tones, the middle ground medium tonal values. All in a smooth and seamless transition.
#2 Place the Warmer Colors in the foreground. Reds, terracotta, orange, etc. The background needs to be cool colors: greys, blues.
#3 Place Crisp, Hard, sharper edges in the foreground. The background edges should be softer, more blurred and out of focus.
