Colours of February - Amethyst using Daniel Smith Primatek Watercolour

Anita will guide you through the steps she has taken to create this Amethyst crystal structure using only Daniel Smith Watercolour – 5ml – (Series 4) – Amethyst Genuine. Anita shares valuable tips and techniques throughout this quick demonstration which will help you develop your skills as a watercolour artist.

Take your time to let each layer dry. It takes practice to get a variation of tones from just one colour, and you may want a second sheet of paper to hand so that you can practise before you start creating your painting. The transparency of the paint and the whiteness of the paper will help to generate the light and shade of the transparent crystal.
