My View on Watercolor Painting

Watercolor Painting

I have to say that watercolors have a mind of their own and sometimes seem as if they are actually fighting you. When this is happening, step back and take a little time (just don't take to long) and learn to accept that sometimes they will pull you in directions you don't expect. Once you accept this then you will start to learn that what you thought was an accident turns into something wonderful.

Here is a tip for the watercolor beginners.

If your painting and end up with a puddle of paint at the bottom of a series of strokes, Do not panic. They call this "gravity". Simply take a relatively dry brush and carefully mop it up.

As you might be able to tell through some of my posts, I am partial to watercolors. I think this is because I have 2 young kids and feel so much safer with something easy to clean up. Never the less watercolor painting is fun and can produce some wonderful pictures.
