Craftsy: Getting Started with Watercolor

craftsy-watercolor

Once again, this week our sponsor is Craftsy which provides video tutorials and downloadable eGuides for aspiring artists. The resources they provide are aimed at people who want to quickly brush up on some basics. This week they’re offering a free downloadable eGuide on the basics of watercolor.

The eGuide provides an introduction to things like paper types, color value, temperature, and intensity, as well as the proper technique for swatching new paints.  If you didn’t go to art school, this is an easy way to pick up some fundamentals. The best part being it costs nothing.

If you want, you can download the Beginner’s Guide to Watercolor.
