Thread: watercolours

    I use watercolors just to blend beautiful colors. My suggestion and recommendation is to paint the sky, but don't search a picture for reference, hell don't even look at the sky. Paint what your mind thinks the sky is, paint what you feel the sky should be. What I do is get basic white paint and a watercolor blue and just blend. Layer the sky with difference shades of blue and white, for me, no stroke should be the same. Also you can cover the paper with a watered down blue as a base effect so you can get the image to pop, just don't douse the brush or the paper will get warped.

    give it a go man you can express yourself in many ways with colour and shapes.....i can draw to a good level but find it to time consuming and much prefer to outline and paint in a more solid and expressive way....art really is open to all

    on the whole i find watercolour a very limited medium for me and prefer to use it in a more robust way then in the delicate way it is usually applied..cheers kidda

    i buy large tubs of acrylic white and add watercolour from tubes to mix and get it to the consistency i want...often i put a watercolour wash down so it comes through when i paint with a knife....works for me...
