What you need:-

watercolour paper

Phthalo Blue & vandyke brown watercolour

Brushes, water etc.


What you do:-


  • Wet the watercolour paper with clean water.
  • Mix equal amounts of phthalo blue and vandyke brown watercolour paint.
  • Paint overlapping stripes across the top of the paper.
  • While the paint is still wet place drops of clean water across the middle.
  • This will give you a 'cloud ' like effect.
  • Before the paint has dried swipe a cotton but across the bottom of the page so it is almost white.
  • Leave it to dry completely.
  • When it is completely dry, paint fine lines for the rain coming from the cloud area in the centre.
  • Paint a tree, grass, a pale hill in the distant.
