Materials used in winter watercolor typography tutorial:-

Colors used for the winter watercolor typography tutorial:-

  • Indigo from Mijello mission
  • Cobalt turquoise light from W/N artists range
  • Bright opera from Mijello mission

Step 1: Start off with tracing or drawing out block letters with your favorite words. The font I’ve used here is “Impact”.Start from the top by painting with Indigo blue. There should be plenty of water for the colors to blend together.

Step 2: Rinse your brush and take Cobalt turquoise light and paint the middle part of the word. Allow the colors to blend by tilting the paper and letting them do the magic.

Step 3: Repeat the same with the last color and allow it to blend. At certain parts, you may need to guide the colors with your brush but for the most part, allow it to blend on its own. I also added a little bit of cobalt turquoise light again over when it was still wet to make it brighter.

Step 4: Allow the entire painting to dry.

Step 5: Next, use the round brush size 2 and paint the trees. The trees in the foreground will be darker and the ones in the background, lighter.

Step 6: Using PH Martin’s bleedproof white, splatter paint on the top part making it look like stars in the night sky.
