Artist's Toolbox: Watercolor equipment II
✿   Watercolor Equipment II - Additional Tools In the first week of Artist's Toolbox, we discussed basic Watercolor Equipment such as paper, brushes and paints. Second week's article presents additional tools, equipment that some artists use to enhance their watercolor creations or just for the fun of it, however none of them is crucial to create a watercolor painting. I divided these tools into two categories - those used to Create Highlights and those used to Create Textures. Bottom part of this article belongs to our watercolorists and their Personal Experience regarding additional tools. 1. Creating Highlights ✐ Masking

AQUA2017 - feature Hello dear members!  Llama Emoji-22 (Waving) [V1] 
It's middle of the January and I'm sure everything is running smoothly for you. Epic 
2017 was an interesting art year, our group gained lots and lots of new members. Some even said goodbye. :wave: 
Let us take a look at 2017 for the (almost) last time and then jump into new watercolor adventures. Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4] 
In one of our journals we asked you to suggest 1 artwork from your own gallery and / or 1 artwork from another fellow artist created in 2017 to be featured.
Here it is!

The (watercolor) artwork that I most remember from what I saw this year :

Distortion by Virtuella

Because the idea is brilliant, and the reflections in the water are beautifully rendered.

And the watercolor that I am most proud of from 2018 is the commissioned eagle-owl, it took me a lot of time, but I think it was worth it :)

I can't decide between two of my pictures... They match together and I like both really much.... Could you maybe help me and choose the one you like more?

It's quite simple. One of them was already featured...AquaChallenge group feature, which means...the left wasn't and it will be now chosen for the Aqua2018 feature.

See how simple it is ;)

Hello =D, thank you for the suggestion, but…

:alert: Paintings must be created and uploaded in the year 2018 (from 1st of January till 31st December of 2018).

We want to show art that was created in 2018. And also don't forget that we are a watercolor group ;)

We accept also other similar looking art media (ink, coffee) and others like gouache, acrylic, but they have to be applied transparent...that they look like watercolors, watery.
