    Some interesting watercolors effects + a miniature tree

    On the same layer or two blended with watercolors modes ... Many interesting textures seems possible just on a rough colour watercolour paper sheet.
    The numbers 1 and 2 refers to blending the same color respectively thinner (lighter) on drier (darker) or drier on thinner (as for real watercolors). The same applies to 3 and 4, but the second stroke is given on the upper layer in WC blending mode.
    Just an experimental spots palette, but I hope this will incentivate many others towards the exploration and use of AR watercolors tool ...

    Excellent study dear Cesare! Thank you for sharing this. I will have to save this in my tutorial file.
    I am experimenting with watercolors also and I have to say that it is my favorite in this software.
    I love to add airbrush on top of watercolor and blend with tiny frost knife too-this can be really nice on petals or skin.

    I'm sorry it's not really a tutorial.
    I just started with the idea of testing light on dark vs dark on light for WC and I lost my control and made a bunch of stroke tests, with all the std WC presets too, without recording how I got each of these effects.
    I can only say that low or zero loading produces interesting stoke end grainy effects with WC also depending from the paper You select.
    Great ideas Yours, dear Sandra, and thanks for this exchange and revelation of Your discoveries ...

    Thanks for posting this, Caesar. I'll run home tonight and try out some of these ideas. Sure would like to know what I'm doing in AR watercolor.

    Thank You dear Katie, Jean, Marcialsj, Oriane and Evart!
    I'm glad to hear that many among You got curious to try watercolors (and some texturized paper), since I'm sure that Your art and some happy accident You may find and exploit will eventually provide many stunning and original artpieces and new effects not yet seen ....
