Now I add the darks. Some watercolor artists cringe at the thought of using black paint. I find it really useful for fast field sketches. These blacks are “neutral tint”. It is fun to see how punching the blacks makes a drawing pop with contrast. If you find your whole drawing is too pale, you may want to start with a little black to force yourself to adjust to that value as you paint.
