I can't stand being methodical and careful with watercolors. I'm an art student and water-mediums were one of the few things we were encouraged to be loose and crazy with, so I ate that up. I love splattering and dripping and experimenting. I get too frustrated with the unpredictability of the medium otherwise.
i know watercolors look amazing when its all neat and clean..talks a lot bout the artists skill..but i prefer to keep things loose n without boundaries..its more like the colors work on their own..i just introduce them to the canvas
I simply can't be spontaneous when it comes to watercolor. I need to plan everything carefully and precisely, I even wonder how can I be that patient with my paintings, because normally I'm extremely impatient I wish I could be less planning and more spontaneous, because it saves a lot of time (which means I can paint moar) too bad there aren't any tutorials on how to be wild watercolorist T_T
Hopefully there is the A bit of both ^^ I think depend the mood, the project and the music you listen at this moment. Also the parts of your drawing. But that question make ask questions about how I paint,
I'm still unfamiliar to the world of watercolour, so I tend to have really neat outlines and careful planning. I really like the "bloom" technique where you dab colours on wet paper, though, so I guess that's when I'd just be wild, haha. When I start getting used to the tools, I'll become more comfortable with being messy.
i tried to be wild with watercolors and it almost always turns out bad for me, to my great disappointment cause i LOVE more wild stuff. but i'm more of an illustrator (my graphic novel is all watercolor and ink) than a traditional painter so being precise tends to be second nature.
