How I Finish A Painting In Watercolour & Gouache - ART TIP

in DTubelast year (edited)

This is how I usually finish a painting in watercolour & gouache.
A little tip for traditional artists and painters who like to do quick studies and plein air paintings in any medium.

It's a simple finishing touch which frames your painting right at the end, and helps it to come forward and lift it off the page a little. You might prefer to leave it without a border, sometimes I also do that. You could even try with a pen if you are feeling extra brave. Experiment and see what works for you!

This is a technique I learned from one of my favourite artists and teachers, Nathan Fowkes.
