I’ve been doing a little bit of painting lately so I thought I would show you guys in another art dump ^_^

 

How To Use Watercolour Resist- Let’s Paint! Watercolour Walk Through

Before I knew what resist was I had wondered for years how watercolour artists managed to paint in blank areas. I tend to paint haphazardly so being able to think forward enough to leave huge blank areas like this was far beyond my scope.

Silk Painting Technique Sampler!

Seeing as I’ve been doing some beginners watercolour posts lately I thought perhaps it would be fun to do something similar with silk painting techniques. So I made a silk sampler to try out a lot of different techniques.
I’m using Opulence silk dye for this post, it’s easy to use and fixes with an iron rather than steam. I’m using clear and black gutta as well. The clear washes out with water and the black is fixed.

Basic Watercolour Techniques – Let’s Paint! Watercolour Walk Through

Good morning! Today we continue on from the last instalment of Watercolour Walkthrough with a tutorial on all of the basic techniques you’ll need to learn before you get started on your grand painting adventures ^_^
One thing to keep in mind before you start is that it’s a great idea to spend a day just painting splotches and practising techniques before you try to paint anything useful. It seems like a waste of materials and time but it’s important to have a feel for things before you get into anything complicated!
First off let’s talk about the combinations of paint and water. There are many ways to paint and the difference between all of them is the amount of water and where it is put. You can paint with a wet brush or a dry brush. You can paint with paper pre-wet or on dry paper and the results are all different.
Below is a photo of each option where I have dipped the brush in my paint and continued wiggling the brush down the page until I ran out of paint.

Let’s Paint! Watercolour Walk Through – Choosing Your Materials

Argh the long awaited watercolour tutorial series! I’ve been putting this off for so long even though I took the photos so long ago. I think that it’s because it’s such an involved topic. There are so many tips and tricks and information that I want to put in this series that I feel like I’m going to forget and miss important things. It’s a topic which is so personal to the artist as well that there is no set way to do things, it’s all about experimenting and finding what’s right for you.
But enough of that let’s get into it!
Today we’re going to start from the beginning: materials.
