Although the wet-in-wet style of watercolor painting is my favorite style, I often don't do this naturally.  So I have to remind myself - and do a bit of practicing - to get into the wet-in-wet groove.

So...taking out a book I've had for a while (by Ewa Karpinska) and a new one I purchased recently (by Jean-Louis Morelle) to play and test the waters (no pun intended!!).  There are some step-by-step works in both of these you can try and I recommend both if you really want to delve into this style of painting.  But be warned that the book by Morelle is 1/4 part about color theory.  You can skip it, if that's not of interest to you, and get right to the demos and talk about water, paint and paper.

Rhonda have studied Ewa Karpinska's book. Very lovely examples of wet into wet. Such fun to see where this method of painting leads. Hope you are safe from Florence flood waters. Have a great week. Hugs!

Two great books! I learned of Ewa Karpinska through Jean-Louis Morelle's book. They are a winning combination!
Looking forward to hearing & seeing more, Rhonda!

Two masters of the technique. Still practicing and trying, for me. No flood waters here, Debbie (we are far north here in KY). Thanks, Chris and Debbie :)
