I had this idea in mind about trying to enhance effects of watercolor giclees. So? Do you like water color art prints?
I had this flower basket picture taken by cousin, Pi – she works with party and events organization.
Another goal was to not run away from the current style of my art.
My plan was to make a very watery under-painting in Corel Painter and then, on top of that, apply layers of very transparent painterly strokes.
The short for Latin word “aqua” (water), Aquarelle, was used to designate the technique “aka” Watercolor in English. In other words, tiny water.
The coloring medium is formed by pigments hung in a water-based solvent to constitute a diluted type of paint that most of the time has to be applied over and over until the desired effect is reached.
The final artworks, color medium and the technique are all called, Watercolor.
Paper is the most usual and customary medium used for color support, the material that will hold the colors applied.
Other color supporting materials include:
- bark papers
Cotton is the best material to be, at least partially, used in watercolor paper making. Its has great texture and diminishes pigment deviance while wet.
Watercolors are normally see-thru, and look radiant because the dye is rested down in clean form with almost nothing blurring the tints.
White tempera or acrylics can be added to cause an opaque effect to the watercolor.
Usually in one-color black or browns Oriental watercolor has always been a dominant form of art expression.
India, Ethiopia, and other regions have historical traditions in watercolor art.
Fingerpainting is also another technique variation that was developed in ancient China.
