Samples of watercolour gradation

I opened up my new pack of watercolour paints today. Until now I’d been using a cheap set that felt kind of chalky when I ran my brush over them. The new ones feel smoother and softer, and the colours are bright and vivid.

I’m taking part in Sketchbook Skool at the moment and decided to catch up on one of Prash‘s classes where he suggests playing with colour gradation, which was a nice little refresher in watercolour technique.
