How I watercolor with little artistic knowledgeHow I watercolor with little artistic knowledge11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to my journal! Main reason I'm doing this is to test out a cool CSS thing! Because I love to waste time like that. But then, since I have not made a WIP journal in a while, I thought, "why not? Especially since I realized I have never done a painting WIP series, only for my splatter ink ones. Now I see why - when you're working with watercolor, everything dries so fast!
Even so, here it is! I'm going to try to give some hints or tips, especially for beginners. But first thin you should know is that I don't work professionally. At all. I'm really messy and I'm always covered in ink afterwards. Furthermore, as seen above, I have to edit my paintings a bit before I post them, because I don't have a scanner. Generally, I take photographs during the day, when I can get the best lighting.
I hope you enjoy! Feel free to ask any more questions in the comments!
Before you watercolor, good things to have on hand:
Paintbrushes - many sizes; soft ones are the best, in my

ANYWHO I thought it'd be fun to show off some artwork I'd never really do on a normal basis for ya'll! And tell a bit about my experience in my classes so far :> I'll skip the English and Art History claseses though since that was just writing essays and listening to 50-minute lectures eugh.
This is probably going to get extensive an d descriptive, so bunker down with some nice hot chocolate and cookies while you read : >
When I first heard the title I thought I was going to be opening rifts in time and space, but turns out 4D is a fancy term for film class really. But it was cool! We learned a lot about the history of film and I got awesome grades with both of my projects. You see, in -every- class I had, minus art history, you get almost daily critiques on things. Critique sessions were wonderful, since it was probably the most helpful and supporti
7 Reasons Why You Should Go to Art SchoolOne of the most frequently asked questions on this site is the infamous: "Is there a point in going to Art School?" It makes my blood pressure rise every time, not so much the question itself as the fact it is asked to, and answered by, people who have no business giving advice on the matter. This article seeks to answer it once and for all, and be warned that it may come across as cutting in certain places. There's a link to my CV in my journal for those who might wonder about my own qualifications.7 Reasons Why You Should Go to Art School8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The short answer is: Yes, there is a point. In fact, if you want to make a carreer out of art, or design, you must go to art school. You can dispense from it if one of the following applies to you:

You need a formation but you have
