How to use a watercolour glazing technique

Watercolour watercolour glazing techniqu painting of a deer surrounded by flowers

For this workshop on perfecting your watercolour glazing technique, I’ll be taking you step by step through one of my paintings – covering everything from concept sketching to watercolour techniques, as well as palette choices and tips on honing your skills and finding your own voice in watercolour.

Working with a fairly limited palette of mostly colours that stain into the paper enables me to keep my paintings clean and luminous through many glazes of colour. Need new resources before you start? See these top guides to the best watercolour paints and and best watercolour paper
