SOME TIPS ABOUT WATERCOLOURS

By Elizabeth Casua - 15:22


A watercolor is the medium or the resulting artwork in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle. The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper.

My mom bought me my first watercolors in my childhood. At first, I didn't realize its properties and beauty, it was just another way to have fun.

As a teenager, I discovered its beauty through comics and illustrations. As soon as I studied Arts, I had the opportunity to learn how use watercolours and instantly felt the beginning of a special relationship.

Transparency, symbiosis with paper and kindness in the application are the things most I like.

If you are thinking to start working with watercolours, I advise you to practice a lot to get some spectacular results. Play with watercolours in order to understand how paint flow works, mix colours to enjoy the transparency of this kind of paint. 

It can help you to start with the backgrounds and finish with the foreground elements. Some people prefer to paint with a negative technique, others start with the light shapes and ends with dark ones. There are a lot of things you can consider. As an aid for beginners, I bring to my blog this video by MyPetiteCakes YouTube because it's a short but useful video where you can learn some important things about watercolours.

I hope you enjoy it!
