Wet-on-wet Painting

Good Morning,

Happy Monday, I hope your weekend was hot, sunny, and relaxing.

It's the first Monday of the month so this week's art blog is an art activity.

Using watercolours follow the instructions and pictures step at a time to learn the wet-on-wet technique.

Let me know how you get on and share the blog.

The bi-weekly Art club will return Thursday 29th July 2 - 4 pm. For only £12.00 bring along a project you're working on and, if you need advice and guidance, it's available in abundance.

Preparations for A.S.K Open day & the art exhibition at West Stockwith are underway. Dates and invitations will be sent out soon.

Have a great week,

Amina & Murphy Art Dog xx



Resources:- watercolour or cartridge paper, watercolours, paintbrushes, waterpot.


  • Draw a rectangle on the paper and fill it with shapes as shown in the first picture.
  • Paint the watercolour paper with a wash of water.
  • Fill in the shapes with pale colours, as shown in picture 2.
  • When the paint has dried, fill some of the shapes with stronger colours. 
  • Paint patterns in some of the shapes.
  • While the paint is still wet, add small lines and let the colour bleed into one another, picture 3.
  • When the paint has dried, paint more lines and shapes. The colours won't bleed as they did when the paint was wet... picture 4.
