Anna Mason, 26th January 201722nd February 2017, 14 Add to "My School Bookmarks" Succulent leaves often have a certain milky bloom-like coating to them. Often students find this a little challenging to tackle. They feel they ought to break out the white paint to add the effect on afterwards. But that’s not the case with watercolour, and so in this little tip video I wanted to show you the process I go though to achieve these effects: Why not schedule a painting session for this weekend? You could try a whole succulent or even just experiment with creating this texture in your sketchbook. Make it happen! Then please let me know about it in the comments below where I’d also love to hear if you’ve struggled with succulents before!
