Here's a short table of content:

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

Thank you for making this tutorial, I can't wait to try out these techniques.
It's been several years since I used watercolours so I'm pretty excited. X) This tuto will help for sure. :3

thank you so much! It makes me really happy to know that someone else has faith in me (even when I don't have any)! So thanks a lot!
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
