For the beginner, watercolor can be a “tough beast” to tame. For the same reasons it is attractive to many, it can tough to use. Especially if you prefer to have full control over the mark and the behavior of the medium. With watercolor, you have to learn to “let go” to a certain degree, and let the watercolor do what it wants to do.

I wanted to share with you a simple approach to watercolor to help build your confidence. This approach is simple, uses only a few colors, and can be accomplished by just about anyone. Only a few layers of applications are used. Watercolor painting is about anticipating how the paint will react, rather than reacting to how it behaves.

Using a big brush, paint the sky wet-on-dry with cobalt blue. Leave a spot of light on the top of Half Dome untouched. Remember that the sky appears warmer and lighter as it approaches the horizon, so add a tiny drop of yellow ochre to the bottom of the blue wash. Also note that in this landscape, the sun is located on the right-hand side, so the sky should be lighter there.
