Artistic Ventures -- Exploring Different Mediums
Well, I consider these 'purists' to be somewhat snobbish. Seems to me no matter how the paint behaves or how you apply it, it will always be your expression and that is what is so important about art.....your expression and the freedom to do so!
Don't let watercolour frustrate you. Take your time and enjoy. Love what you have done already and the more you do the more confident you will become.
The market is ever changing to assist watercolourists....there is now a stretched canvas available that allows you to paint in watercolour and seal with acrylic glaze.....no longer requiring framing under glass. So maybe I can afford to look at watercolours again.
In my 'sneaky sneakers' shown here you will notice the floor area around the shoes looks rather messy......I had to wet the area and blot out excess paint with a cloth. But that's okay, it was a learning experience and the picture still conveys what I wanted to say; albeit not in a gallery fashion
I recently tried to use acrylics. ... Look at my earlier blog 'Acrylic Failures' for some really bad painting using a different medium. Wish I had done half as good as you with your exploration of watercolour. Congratulations on your latest work....love them all.
