✿ Watercolor Equipment
Watercolor is a painting technique in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble binder. Usually, the result is transparent and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with a few fillers obscuring the pigment color. This medium was never taken as seriously as "high art" techniques such as oil painting and was rather seen as pale and miniaturist, but it's gradually reclaiming it's place as a vehicle for the most beautiful and unexpected artistic expression. Watercolor can be vibrant and large, very vital, spontaneous and leaning a little on luck. All these aspects make watercolor painting a medium with great potential for new discoveries.

Arthur RackhamArthur Rackham was born on the 19th of September 1867 in London and died of cancer at the age of 71 in Limpsfield, Surrey. He's considered to be one of the most recognisable artists of the Golden Age of Illustration in Europe, along with John Bauer and Theodor Kittelsen.Arthur Rackham3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
He was born in a big family - it's enough to mention that he had 11 siblings, but surely plenty of you knows that it wasn't quite unusual in the XIX century and earlier. We know that in his youth, Rackham's health was rather poor - hence he travelled to Australia with his two aunts to improve his condition.
After he returned, he began studying at the Lambeth School of Art. In 1892 he started working as a r

I got an invitation to this page a few days ago and tried it out. It's fun and because of the active community and easy to get into.

Absolutely ingenious system, if you ask me.. d: Interaction is a bit tricky, since there only seems to be the option to write @ + name when you want to reply to a specific person.

A Little Something we all should hearFor the past few months I have been meeting with a family friend (an accountant) to help me with my taxes. Out of all the subjects to understand, finances are definitely way beyond the grasp of my brain, so I am very thankful to have someone so knowledgeable helping me with this foreign, scary, and unavoidable subject. It should not have come as a surprise, but at the end of this month, she told me I owe a lot of money. (Don't worry, I am not asking for donations) At first my heart just sank, yes I had the money, but it was pretty much most of my business savings. I was not feeling good about things.A Little Something we all should hear1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After mulling it over for a day, I realized I have nothing to be upset about, I am not in debt and I can certainly save more money as time goes by. It put everything in perspective for me. I did not begin making art for the money. Nobody born with the need to express themselves through art does it with intent to make a profit. They do it because it gives them life, because any futu
Thumbelina First Looks and Muddy Colors InterviewThumbelina First Looks and Muddy Colors Interview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will be at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 2 later this week, and will be debuting the first paintings in my Thumbelina series.
Interview with Justin Gerard on Muddy Colors:
JG: So speaking of your work, you are currently working on a series of paintings based on Hans Christian Anderson's Thumbelina fairy tale. Can you tell us a bit more about that?
AS: I have wanted to do a series on this fairy tale for a while now. The reason I like Thumbelina has largely to do with the magic and mystery of childhood.
When we are young, the world is so big and magical and I think you lose some of that when you grow up. I like to imagine a place where everything is still a little unknown, and there is so much left to discover. Stories like Thumbelina

I'm racist because I never drew an african dragon.
Suggesting to draw the rainbow serpent (Aido-Hwedo) resulted in a long rant about me being ignorant and making fun of a culture I knew nothing about by just making up some garbl-names.
While we're at it, it's racist to draw green people.

Watercolour ExperimentsTraditional ArtWatercolour Experiments7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Who doesn't like experimenting with media? I admit that I didn't expect it to be so fun until I actually sat down to it. Below you'll find a list of some weird things I did to a bunch of innocent watercolour rectangles.
Salt and sugar
Salt is nothing new for people who's been dealing with watercolour for some time. Depending on the amount of water, pigment, and salt - as well as the grain size - you can acquire a whole variety of textures. They all have the same thing in common - they push the pigment out, and leave brighter spots. I have a separate article on salt textures here.
The green bit was treated with the common kitchen salt, small grains. The pink one was hit with coarse bathing salt - as you might have guessed, it was blue. Contrary to what you might expect, thicker grains won't get you bigger "anti-stains".
I've heard a lot about
