How to Create Fences in Watercolor Painting
On behalf of Tvlessson.com, I'm Sherie Tengbergen. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to make nice cardboard fences. In other words, we’re going to use a piece of cardboard to create a very great looking fence like this. And, when you pick your piece of cardboard, you want to decide how large you want your fence to be. In this case, I'm going to make a short little stubby fence.
So, once I have my background and everything painted, I'm going to take my piece of cardboard. I'm going to mix some browns on my palette here and then I take my cardboard and I'm going to dip it in that pink and then I'm going to come over to my paper and I'm going to push down. And then, I'm going to turn my paper upside down, load my cardboard again and press one more time and there is my first fence post on my cardboard.
And, I'm going to repeat this to create different fence post for my fence. And, isn’t that great? And, look at the texture you get from just a piece of cardboard. It’s important that you push down, flip your paper and then go back the other way to straighten out any edges that you may want to straighten.
And then, for your side fence post, you do the same thing. Dip, pull, turn and pull again and you start getting some really nice fence post and you end up with your own cardboard fence.
