Paint the colorful landscape below, remembering that watercolor paints are translucent. Because they are translucent, you can’t paint light colors on top of dark colors successfully. So, start with the lightest colors and finish with the darkest colors. For example, paint the entire light colored path beige. Then, layer by layer add the other colors over the top. For example, paint the entire sky a light blue. Then, layer the tree trunks and foliage over the top of the dry blue sky, starting with the lightest colored foliage.
