In this Live Demo, watch artist Lene Myhre paint a mushroom with watercolour then add coloured pencil for extra detail. She will create texture with depth and color and work some magic by getting white without using white paint.

Check out this reference image and outline sketch here if you want to paint along!

Topics Covered:

  • Using wet on dry for initial light washes, then dropping in more colour to deepen values;
  • Painting white without using white;
  • Outlining the contours with watercolour paint; 
  • Adding in coloured pencil after everything dries for final touches, textures, and details.
