Start by squeezing some paint onto your lid or palette. You don’t need a lot to get started.
1
Now use your brush to add a little water and mix it into the dab of paint.
2
Now you can begin painting. You may want to continue adding water as you go.
3
Try adding another color to your palette. Notice how the colors mix.

You can use a separate lid to keep your colors separate. Use a different brush, or wash your brush.
5
As parts of your painting dry, you can add layers of watered down paint. This is called a wash.

Continue adding more colors and shapes to your painting.

You may like the way some colors mix, or not like the the way other colors mix.

Take time to experiment.

You might use a small brush to add careful details.

Notice how adding water makes colors run and move.

You can use a wash as the basis for a more extensive painting.

Once your original layers have dried, you can layer more colors on top.

You can always let your painting dry and add more layers later on.
