6 Mistakes Beginning Watercolor Painters Should Avoid

I'm looking forward to teaching a new crop of beginning watercolour painters in the fall, but this summer is all about putting some of what I have learned over the years onto video. One thing I see with new students is that many of them make the same early mistakes, so I make "what not to do" an opening part of my classes. I'll demonstrate a different "don't" each week. Some of these are simple things that make sense when demonstrated, and others are mistakes most of us make when starting out in watercolour and will be resolved over time and with practice.

Enjoy the video! I'd love to hear your comments.
