Judi Betts was paying attention when she watched Millard Sheets demonstrate one of his watercolor techniques on how to section off the surface and invent color chords—color relationships—to make an underpainting that provided texture, shape and value. This visual collage, topped with complementary midtones, added mystery and established rhythm, making the painting itself richer.

Enjoy this gallery of her midtone watercolor paintings below, read more about the process and find some watercolor painting ideas of your own in the August 2014 issue of Watercolor Artist, available now at and on newsstands June 17.

    I can't take part in the discussion right now - there is no free time. I will be free - I will definitely write what I think.

    I'm sorry, but I think you are wrong. I'm sure. I can prove it. Email me at PM, we'll talk.
