Purpose: To experiment and learn a variety of watercolor techniques.
Perhaps the most important concept I learned during the watercolor unit was to work from light to dark not dark to light. This is very important because with water color you can always make it darker but never lighter. Another important concept was to plan out your painting because water colors can be very fickle. Another thing I found very important when painting with water colors was to be very carful with your brush strokes because the water causes the color to spread very easily, probably into an area where it is not supposed to go.
