By this I mean that all the colors appear to be of the same intensity and there is little contrast. I see this often in my teaching, and believe me when the adjustment is made it really brings a painting to life. Don’t be afraid of painting with stronger colorsHere you will see how to:Layer the same colour on top of itself to get a more intense colourYou will see the difference more intense colours can make to a colouredwatercolour painting.You will deepen your understanding by converting a colour painting into a sepia painting or monochrome painting.These exercises will really help your understanding of the importance of fully using colour values to add drama to your work.This is a must for painters who feel they have reached a plateau or that their watercolorswork looks flat.It’sEASYto follow, stop and start as you wish, relax and enjoy working as and when it suits you and at yourown pace.At any time you can post questions for any advice and also for feedback on your finished paintings.This what one student said:’Very good course. I have been learning to paint exclusively through Udemy classes and this was my missing piece! I understand and know shading from pencil drawing but my paintings were flat and it drove me crazy. I was discovering layering however I was only doing 2 or 3 layers and the colors were to close together. This course and the simple exercises really demonstrate how to make your paintings have that “pop” to them. I am off to paint now, Nicola is a motivating instructor.
