Watercolor Tutorial for #LoveSummerArt-Seashells

lovesummerart waterolor


So here we go with my second Project for the #LoveSummerArt Event on YouTube (you can read more about it here in my last Blogpost) . . . I decided for a Seashell / Treasures of the Sea Still-Life for this one.

I actually planned to keep this a “Watercolor only” when I started it-you know-doing something different from time to time and breaking the own rut . . . BUT . . . yeah . . . you guess . . . in the end  I ended up doing it “my way” anyways becasue for ME it just did not seemed finished and “me” before I added the outlining / doodles / crosshatches . . . so much about “breaking the rut” *lol* . . . anyways . . . here is the Tutorial Video for you + some Progress-Shots . . . hope you will enjoy!

    I think I like the outlined version best. It seems more vivid and jumps from the page! The one with the title is nice if you were using it to announce a class or something like that. But just as a piece by itself, I like it without the words. Thanks for the great tutorial!ReplyCancel

    Hi Andrea!

    Thank you for another wonderful tutorial! It’s beautiful! You are so talented!

    Of course all the versions are awesome but my favorite is when you outline in pen and add the cross-hatching. Just stunning! I also really like the lettering.

    Thank you again!!

    I prefer the outlined version, though all are gorgeous! I’ve always outlined everything- it just makes the colors brighter and more vivid, in my opinion. An art teacher once told me not to use black, that it wasn’t “natural” looking, but I guess I just don’t care if it looks natural- I like a whimsical look better anyway!ReplyCancel

    Definitely the cross hatch version! Thank you for sharing your work. I love it!ReplyCancel

    I love them all, but with the outlining it speaks the most to me!!ReplyCancel

  • Cristỉña Gàbriella5. August 2015 - 16:07

    Yay! That’s exactly what I wanna paint in watercolors! Just because it’s summer, baby! Thanks for posting this lovely page, Andrea! <3ReplyCancel

    I love how individual your style is, with the little scribbles in ink over the more traditional watercolor. It’s a really great technique for doing quicker sketches, I’ve found (lol, I lack the patience to ever be a real watercolorist, but a quick wash and ink over it works well, even with a less skilled artist than Andrea….)ReplyCancel
