What color is white?
Gorgeous, glowing colors make white when you use watercolor!
Learn three common, compatible colors for the easiest glowing grays. Watercolor has the most gorgeous gray shades of all the painting mediums, and even beginners can mix them. This snowy tree can make a drop dead gorgeous small painting or a beautiful card that your friends and family will cherish.
And, if you're a beginner, you may find yourself saying, "I can't believe I painted this!", just like my other students have.
This lesson is fine for total beginners. Your washes may not stay put, but it will still turn out beautifully.
I'm a self taught artist and I love teaching!
My story is simple.
I showed a lot of interest and talent as a child, but my parents discouraged art as a waste of time. I spent my adult life as a nurse and raised a family - pretty busy. While I was home with the birth of my daughter, I bought a cheap set of watercolors and fell in love with the bloom of color. I told my husband, 'I'm going to keep painting with these until I get really good.'
Back then, not many painted realistic watercolors, so I practiced and tried things until I worked out my own style. It took a lot of trial and error,
. When I entered my first art show, I won two awards and was told I'd have to enter the professional category and not beginner. That frightened me soo much, I didn't enter again for years.
When my work began selling, I entered more shows with more great success. I worked very hard and became a full time professional artist and teacher.
Although my work has been recognized and featured in major exhibitions, books and magazines, I'm very down to earth, and just love painting.
No one has 'all the time in the world'. Paint now. You're never too old, it's never too late. Any bit of time you can practice will improve your skills.
And yes, this cowboy is a watercolor painting. (Reference photo used with permission by Diana Robinson)
