Oils were the first thing I took outdoors when I headed out to paint. I’ve painted with acrylics, pastels, colored pencils, watercolor pencils…and just about anything else that crosses my path.
One thing I discovered was that after understanding the properties/limits of the behavior of a medium it isn’t difficult to work with it.
With watercolor I find I can get it to look like something if I don’t get in my own way, don’t ever try to correct anything, think a bit before I put that color down, commit to it, do it and just leave it be. If I don’t like it -I just do another one . Its only a piece of paper.
Hey, I know what I’m talking about I’ve sculpted marble and granite, that’s another story…
