If you are interested in learning more about watercolor: the colors you choose; the differences between transparent, semi-transparent, opaque, and gouache; what makes a warm or cool color; all that good stuff!! Then hop over to Maggie Latham's posts about it and learn. She's sharing a lot of good information there and it's priceless - and it's free!! Thanks, Maggie.
Anyone who's beginning in watercolor, or those who needs a refresher - or those of us who are color geeks and, until we learned better, had to have every single tube put out by a manufacturer (meaning me!) - will gain a lot by reading this post!
Don't you just love how artists are willing to share their hard-earned knowledge and special insights with all of us, and all we have to do is spend a little bit of time reading, looking and trying it out (remember, you aren't going to become good just reading and watching - you gotta get those brushes in the water and paint and then onto the paper!).
Have a colorful day - and thank an artist today!
