Watch the following video first, reading the captions. Then start it over and paint along on a piece of watercolor paper from your sketchbook. If you want to pull out the piece and use removable masking tape or washi tape along the edges, you may.
You can choose your own colors from your watercolor set. Just be sure to pay attention to the values, working light to dark. Do not use white. You change the value of a color using more or less water in your brush.
