Recently there are a lot of questions about the right amount of water in your watercolor paintings. Here are some tips for you to master the paint-to-water ratio! So that you can easily control water and end up with the colors you wanted!

The first way to control your paint-to-water ratio is when you mix your paint! You can use more water and less paint for a very light color and more paint and less water for a saturated and dark color.

My tip is to create a value scale! Watch the video down below to see how to do that!

You can also change your paint-to-water-ratio with the amount of water you add to the paper! Too much water leads to a dome or pools of water on your paper and not enough makes your paint harder to blend.

My tip is to add as much water until you see a light shimmer or a gloss of water.

Watch my video below to learn more about the right paint-to-water ratio.

If you tried everything but it still seems to you that you don’t get the right paint-to-water ratio, don’t worry it’s probably not your fault! You might have the wrong supplies. No idea what the right supplies are? No problem!
