ONE WORD WEDNESDAY


Colors

Photo by R.H. Carpenter


This was chosen for the OWW photo because, today at the watercolor society meeting, Lois Schaich will be doing a talk and demo on pouring watercolors for painting.  Lois loves doing this, and it shows in her work.  I am looking forward to this program today.

Hello Rhonda:) I've seen pouring watercolors on youtube. You can get the most beautiful results with it. Lots of succes and much fun today:)

Debbie Nolan said...

Rhonda - hope you have lots of fun. Pouring watercolors can be so lovely and fresh. Take care and enjoy yourself.

Maggie, I sent you an email re:PayPal button stuff.

Yes, Renate, it can be so light and lovely when you pour your whole painting - or just do the background pouring and then paint the usual way.

Debbie, thanks :) It was a fun day and I learned something - she used plastic condiment bottles for pouring (the kind you see at picnics with ketchup in them) and I'm going to get some - you can control the pour better that way!

Now this photo would make a good painting - maybe a PPPPoured painting that won't be BBBBoring!!

I can hardly wait to hear about the pouring. On my blog today (first posting) I show a pour that I did Wed that did not turn out so well. Will be anxious to hear about your demo!

Deb, you might be right but I have 2 to finish before starting another! haha

Ginny, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Lois did her pour as just a background "flavor" for the painting of sunflowers. She poured a yellow, a red and a blue and let them mingle and move and then drew on the dried background colors and started painting wet-in-wet. When I pour, I always pour the whole painting, only tweaking the end darks in areas - I like the idea of using the pour as just a first step for a loose background. Deb may have more info on the GCWS blog later this month so check there to get more info and maybe a few photos.
