Quick time lapse of how i paint my watercolour galaxies ✨ i get a tonne of questions about these when i post on my story so thought i'd give some examples here and a couple pointers for how i create them.
if you have any questions hit me up in the questions! ✨first is to make sure you have a good quality watercolour paper. i like to use 300gsm as it stops the paper warping so much when it gets wet.
✨second is to make sure you wet the paper thoroughly before applying colour. this let's the colours bleed more and blend together a lot easier!
✨third is to start with the lighter colours/tones and get darker as you build them up.
here i'm using @winsorandnewton watercolour paint (block colour rather than gouache - just a personal preference) on @hahnemuehle_global 300gsm textured watercolour paper 🙏✌️

@lovechildoriginal i just make sure i only wet the paper up to the edge of the circle! and then with the ink being waterproof it keeps it inside the border 😄
