    These are all wonderful tips and I have used them myself. One thing I learned when I started taking watercolor classes is to under-paint. What that means is you lay in a light color to begin your painting….the violets, blues, yellow-orange depending on what you are painting. Kate’s suggestion of putting down shadows first is a good one and I do this most of the time with great success. The main thing to remember: IT’S ONLY PAPER and you can always repaint.
