Water Color Tutorial.8
Water Color
With Crisp
For Hibiscus , a digital water color painted in Painter 7, I used water color
wet-into-wet techniques and then added a few crisp edges. Wet-into-wet is a
traditional technique that can be simulated using Painter 7Õs new water
color technology. Wet-into-wet involves keeping the paper wet as new color
is applied, so new colors blend with existing moist paint. To complete the study,
crisp edges and linear details were added to bring a few areas into focus.
1 Setting up.
Setting up Brush Tracking
For the best performance, Macintosh users may need to increase the RAM
that is allotted to Painter when working with Water Color. Before you begin
to sketch and paint, itÕs important to set up the Brush Tracking because you
can customize how Painter interprets the input of your stylus, including pa-
rameters such as pressure and how quickly you make a brush stroke. Choose
Edit> Preferences> Brush Tracking and make a representative brush stroke
in the window.
2 Opening a new file.
Starting a new file
Begin by creating a new Þle with a white background (File> New). In the
New Picture dialog box, click the Image button. For a rectangular format, set
the Width and Height at 1100 x 850 pixels. Click OK. (The brush sizes that
youÕll use will depend on the pixel size of the document.)

3 Making a pencil sketch.
Choose a natural-looking grain (such as Cold Press Water Color), from the
Papers section of the Art Materials palette. Choose a neutral gray color in
the Color section of the Art Materials palette and select the Cover Pencil
variant of Pencils to draw your line sketch. Because it uses the Cover
method, the Cover Pencil allows drawing both dark lines over light, and light
lines over dark.

4 Painting the Þrst washes.
Plan to work from light-to-dark as you add color washes to your painting.
Choose a light color in the Colors section of the Art Materials palette and
choose the Diffuse Camel variant of Water Color. (Selecting a Water Color
brush and making a brush stroke on your image will automatically create a
new Water Color Layer in the image.) Block in large areas with the Diffuse
Camel brush. When you use a light pressure on your stylus, the Diffuse
Camel will allow you to smoothly lay in soft-edged washes. The diffusion
built into the brush helps colors to subtly blend as you paint.
Paint with strokes that follow the direction of the forms. DonÕt feel like
you have to cover every inch of the flower with color. Leaving strategic areas
of white will add beauty to your painting.
Choosing a light pink for the first
The active Water Color layer shown in
the Layers section of the Objects
palette. Keep an eye on the animated
water drop. When it stops Òdripping,Ó
itÕs safe to make a new brush stroke.

5 Building up midtones.
Reducing the Opacity of the Diffuse
Camel brush
Using medium-value colors, begin to develop your midtones. Paint lighter
colors Þrst, then add darker tones to create form. Keep your light source in
mind and let your strokes follow the direction of the forms. Resize the
brush, or change its Opacity as needed using the sliders on the
Controls:Brush palette. Remember to preserve the subtle white areas. In this
example, I added deeper colors of pink and gray-green. I also dabbed on
subtle brush strokes of golden yellow to warm up the interior of the
hibiscus flower.
Keep in mind that Painter 7Õs water color is based on traditional water
color. With traditional water color, an artist plans on drying time and this
time is often used to analyze and improve the composition of the painting.
PainterÕs new water color technology uses a lot of computing power. It takes
time for the digital pigment to diffuse, and settle on the canvas. This is not
unlike traditional water color.

6 Editing water color or the sketch.
Choosing the Eraser, Dry variant of
Water Color
To softly erase color on a Water Color layer, choose the Eraser, Dry variant of
Water Color and choose white in the Colors section. Click on the name of
the layer you wish to erase in the Layers section, and brush over the area
that youÕd like to lighten. I used the Eraser Dry variant to lighten color on
the flowerÕs stamen.
If youÕd like to edit your pencil sketch, target the Canvas in the Layers
section, and switch to the Eraser variant of the Erasers and brush over the
area that you want to remove. (You can not use a regular eraser on a water
color layer. Also itÕs not possible to use a Water Color eraser on the canvas,
or on an image layer.)
In the example below, the pencil sketch is hidden (by turning off the eye
icon to the left of the Canvas name in the Layers section). Later, I deleted the
sketch by targeting the Canvas, choosing Select> All and pressing the Delete key.
