1st Prize: Rebelle 5 Watercolor - Fig Tree by Tom Gallovich

In this tutorial Tom allows the watercolors to mix and run in a free style way. In this video, you will learn how to establish the middle values as a starting point. Tom is using the Freehand Selection Tool to work with specific areas. Then he showcases how to erase color and add darker colors to define the fig tree shapes. The use of multiple layers let's him keep the options open. Building on previous layers of color will define the final look of the painting. The final piece is a 20' x 10' at 300DPI.

Extra Tips for Rebelle 5 Pro users:
Once the painting is complete Tom goes over the options and image preparation for a NanoPixel Export. He discusses the changes and what to consider when doubling the size of your painting. The final export is a 40 x 20 at 300 DPI.
