Painting Fire In Watercolor

by Mary Fraser
(Montreal)

I wet the fire area...put bright yellow in the central hot spot... then a light yellow in the other fire areas. Add red to this and let it flow.


Note From Bob: Thanks for this tip Mary. A lot of people ask how to paint flames - not necessarily in watercolor - and it's a topic I've been meaning to cover. I'll work on putting together a tutorial (probably video based) in the coming weeks and link to it here.

Very powerful image Mary.
