A watercolour painting with watercolours; a technique where the colour is diluted with water, making it transparent on white paper. It's illustrated here with watercolour crayons; the colour is applied dry and then painted over with a brush and water.

How to do it
Guide step 1
1.
Sketch a design on watercolour paper with a pencil, preferably with an HB grade because it gives a fine line without smudging. Use waterproof crayons; eg:- Neocolor I, as an alternative.
Guide step 2
2.
Important (if the watercolour paper is not from a pad with glued edges): Attach the paper onto the work table with masking tape, preventing the paper from bowing upwards when painting. A tip: protect the table by placing a plastic pocket underneath.

Guide step 5

A tip: Use watercolour crayons as block colours. This is achieved by painting each colour onto a plastic pocket which then acts like a palette. Now dip the brush in water, retrieve the watercolour from the plastic pocket and paint on the watercolour paper.
