The truth was I didn't know how do create a successful watercolor underpainting. There came a time that I decided to conquer my aversion. I paid close attention to the masters of the underpainting. Richard McKinley was a great help to me. He told me that if I wanted to do better underpaintings then to just do underpaintings.....lots of them. And I was not to worry about putting pastel on them. Just practice, practice and more practice.

It worked! I still have room for improvement but I now embrace watercolor and love the effects I can get. I have written several blog articles about the watercolor underpainting process. I decided to put all of these articles together into one resource. I made a Readlist with them.
A group of web pages—articles, recipes, course materials, anything—bundled into an e-book you can send to your Kindle, iPad, or iPhone.
