Here's a short table of content:
1. Tools

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 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
