Basic watercolour techniques

From colour-intensive "dry" artwork to atmospheric watercolour paintings, the high-quality STAEDTLER karat aquarell watercolour pencils offer unlimited creative possibilities.

The following images and explanations will give you a short overview of the most popular dry, wet and special techniques:

Dry techniques



Draw a series thin lines closely together: For special light and shadow effects.



Blend by overlaying individual colours.

Wet techniques



Wash colours with a brush – the more the colour is diluted, the lighter it becomes and the surface shows through.



Use dry lead on moist paper – strokes remain visible but become richer and slightly creamy.

Special techniques

Scraping or shaving technique

Scraping or shaving technique:

Use a knife to carefully remove the wood casing and then rub the exposed coloured lead against coarse-grained sandpaper. When scattered over a very wet wash, the particles create attractive effects and structures.

Smudging and blotting

Smudging and blotting:

Create gentle pastel shades and overlays of colour by smudging or blotting with a dry or moist cloth.

Sgraffito effect

Sgraffito effect:

Add structures to thick, wet paint by smearing with a cotton bud or cloth.
