I did this warm up exercise using mostly warm colors. You will need your watercolor paints, watercolor brushes and a Gold Leaf Pen.
Start by drawing big shapes in your journal or on a small piece of Arches 140 lb watercolor paper with the gold leaf pen. I drew my initials JN. Make sure you go off the page here and there.
Then add smaller shapes within your large shapes.
Pick a color scheme warm or cool. I chose a warm palette so I painted all my shapes with yellows, oranges, reds and combinations of these colors. The gold leaf pen lines will act as a resist to the paint.
