Watercolor Tutorial [Techniques + Flowers] by Ze-RoFruits Watercolor Tutorial [Techniques + Flowers] by Ze-RoFruits
The long awaited watercolor tutorial!

If you want to know how to paint this picture, read the tutorial ;3



Here's a short table of content:
1. Tools
2. Painting the background
3. Painting the skin
4. Painting roses in watercolor
5. Painting the hair
6. Painting details of the face
7. Painting fabrics
8. General Flowers & Plants

This tutorial covers the basic blending and layering techniques of how I paint with watercolors.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me! I'll gladly help!



I'd be happy to see your artworks inspired from this tutorial ;3

I'd appreciate comments and favs - please do not just download this without a word ^_^'



I really wanted to do this as a flash tutorial, but retro long-ass tutorials are much faster to do. And since I didn't want to let you wait any longer and most of you wanted this format anyways, here's the long picture tutorial ;3

You cheered me up! <3

No need to mention it. I am glad for making one of my favorite artists on DA happy even if it was just for a bit ^^. And it really shocks me (not to mention saddens me) to know that you don't have much faith in yourself. You are an awesome artist. Its all due to your hard work which is obvious whenever I look at any of your works and because of your inspiring creativity in your themes and styles. before seeing your works I was in a period where I almost completely stopped drawing, but when I saw your works I became inspired to draw again. I must thank you for that.
I hope you have known how amazing you are now, you cheer me up all the time!Hug

The quality for this is a bit low, its blurry and hard to read. Is there a better quality version? Or can you update with a better one? Its really helpful despite me not being able to fully read everything. So i hope i can get to read everything. I'm eager to try my hand at watercoloring!
