The reasons why I don’t like transparent watercolors

April 24, 2008 § 4 Comments

…is that I cannot achieve dark darks with them. And I really like a wide value range in my paintings, starting from bright white to deep black if possible. So I often find myself adding black ink to my watercolor paintings in the end, just because I couldn’t achieve those dark values that I had been looking for just by mixing my watercolors. Well, and after I have added the black ink, I sometimes get out my white acrylic ink, too, to enhance the highlights and then I usually get out my pastel pencils, my colored pencils and my oil pastels as well and — I end up with a mixed media piece :-|.

You see, I really appreciate those beautiful watercolor paintings by all those gifted painters out there whenever I see them, but over time and with many (mainly failed) attempts to paint I realized that I’m probably more the acrylic and oil color kind of girl.

¬†Hmmm…I said that I would finish this one today and I think it’s finished now. Perhaps I still have to tweak it a little bit, but I call it done for now.¬† It’s time to move on with the acrylic painting again :).

Colored Pencil: Blue Rose (WIP)

Decided that I need a little break from the acrylics. So I started a little colored pencil project titled “Blue Rose”. It’s almost finished now and I’m sure that it will be completely finished by tomorrow :).
