WIP photos from the creation of this painting:
It's not much of a tutorial, more like an overview of my process on that piece. I'll need to take more exhaustive WIPs on a painting to be able to make a proper presentation, but I hope that people find these interesting.
As for my technique with the smoke, contrary to popular belief rewetting a watercolor painting does not
automatically destroy everything you've put down so far! You just need to know your paints, and how they act when you rewet them. AND wait until the previous wash is bone dry; I find that a hairdryer helps if you're impatient about that sort of thing. Play around on some scrap paper to find out how much abuse your paints will take!
