Yeh true though it would be nice to focus on art over other things for a while...having said that I've got loads of paintings I've not got around to uploading.
I really need to focus down on certain mediums, but I do really love them all. Unfortunately if I don't I'll probably go down the 'Jack of all trades, master of none' route.
It seems like watercolour really wants you to spend a good bit of time learning it, and learning how to let it do it's own thing. Do love watercolour but it doesn't feel like an easy one to just dip your toes in.
I've been looking up a few and they are good for technique ideas but so far the things I've mostly tripped over are basic knowledge stuff like what stage of dryness to add salt, is masking fluid/paint completely dry before I do something next to it ....all the things you learn with time and practice. just need to get that practice.
Wow that is a lot of videos, thanks for making your lists.
I was looking for new art videos/channels to start going through, trying to get my procrastination time on youtube to also be useful, so I'll definitely go through them all. This is really helpful, thank you.
World Watercolor MonthHello Watercolorists!
There is a special occasion in July for us to celebrate. Everyone heard of Inktober at some point of their life? Thanks to one of our members (thank you ParadoxSketchbook! ) we found out about a similar art challenge created by Doodlewash - but with watercolor as the main medium to use. Thanks to Doodlewash's initiative, July is going to be World Watercolor Month.
It’s a month to inspire people to paint with watercolor (watercolour, aquarelle) while raising awareness for the importance of art and creativity in the world. And anyone can join the celebration from master watercolorists to artists just starting out with watercolor! Simply tag any art that uses watercolors (or gouache) with #WorldWatercolorMonth during the month of July! Try the ultimate challenge of 31 watercolors in 31 days, or simply post when you can! It
