Original Fort Lauderdale beach path watercolor with a focus on the many textures and colors found at the beach.

Watercolor Techniques

Incorporating a variety of techniques to create a sunlit path I started with pouring layers of watercolor. Leaving the path a pale yellow and a pretty violet on either side of the painting.

Palm trees line the path to Fort Lauderdale Beach. beach

After that dried I painted the leaves and grasses with a combination of colors. I always paint with some of the colors that I poured on the background. Or adding the color in with new colors creates color harmony.

When everything dried I painted the bicycle. Using some of the rose color I painted the bike. The color was not popping enough so I added white gouache to the rose watercolor and finished the bicycle.
