Read about this approach...
The traditional approach is to pre-select a subject, and then work toward achieving the result. Although striving for innovation, I have never overlooked the importance of traditional/academic approaches to watercolor painting. It is imperative to master drawing skills and techniques of handling the inherent qualities of watermedia such as controlling paint and washes. It is also crucial to have a thorough understanding of design. Before starting a painting, I would analyze its design elements and then orchestrate these abstract elements into a cohesive painting by applying design principles. I use this approach for painting subjects with concrete forms and complex perspective, such as boats, buildings and streets.
