How to make watercolour drawings like a real artist

In France we have an expression that says « la pomme ne tombe jamais loin de l’arbre », « the apple does not fall far from the tree », and in my family it’s true since one of my daughters also paints !

My daughter Gaëlle is a watercolor artist, she illustrated a collection of 12 books about signs of the zodiac.

Watercolour is one of the types of painting I propose in my art classes, especially when they are given outdoors.

I now give the floor, or rather « the brush » to my daughter to tell us about this very particular painting technique that is watercolor.
