MONOCHROMATIC WATERCOLOUR PAINTING.

MONOCHROMATIC WATERCOLOUR PAINTING.

This painting is very easy to make. All  you require is a single colour to make it. This painting is made with  blue watercolour paint and different size brushes. You can use any colour of your choice as per your painting. This method of painting is suitable for portraits, landscapes or any other thing you choose to make. It gives a filtered look to the painting and looks very beautiful. I saw this one on the net and had to try it out.

 

THINGS REQUIRED:

  • Blue watercolour paint
  • Brush
  • Water
  • Watercolour sheet

 

PROCEDURE:

First wet the area of the paper that is going to be the sky by dipping the brush into water and then applying it to the paper. Add colour to your brush and paint the sky using horizontal strokes. Make the trees by smudging the paint and then make the wall using a thin brush. Do not add much colour for shading the wall, keep applying water and paint. Make a man on the cycle with a thin brush and add thin strokes for branches of the trees in the background and electric lines.

 

TIP:

While working with watercolours don’t get upset if the colour is looking too dark because after drying the colour will definitely get lighter in shade.

Don’t use normal paper, use a watercolour sheet as there will be chances of the paper tearing or getting soaked because of the water that is used while making the painting and you might end up with paper mash.

    beautiful, given that its monochrome. does the use of single color accentuate the concept of depth in the paintings?

    1. Yes, it does indeed…Depth can be given by using different shades of the same colour.

        yes shades give the impression of depth, but I was wondering whether the concept of depth is better presented in monochrome as opposed to using more colors.
