Spotlight on Chinese White via Windsor Newton
Another short post like yesterday’s, lots of knick knack stuff plus taking advantage of long morning and evening walks that bookended another 90+ degree day! Had hope to have more info on the youngest girl’s bilingual presentation of her illustrated children’s book, Skydancer, but hopefully tomorrow 😊

Today, didn’t get to paint, but did spot some nifty pics I liked plus a few articles (museums having a tough time!), but wanted to share this 3 minute read from Windsor Newton re the color Chinese White 🎨

Because I’ve been experimenting with watercolor for a few months now, and “evidently” there’s a difference of opinion if one should use white or not in watercolor, I thought this might be a good read. Plus it’s presented as a 3 minute read, lol!

The short post packs a lot of interesting history about its development as a color, including an impressive list of artists “way” back who 1st starting using it 😊

Keeping the faith art is my way ❤️
Stay well everyone!

Suggested link,
Greta Olivas, an artist I’ve personally known here in Austin for a few decades, has continued to blossom with her abstract art. I’ve been able to link-suggest several artists in this spot in my Covid series, and hope you’ll take a look at her About page, and then take a look at her creative work 👩‍🎤

Do you have good, positive, useful or encouraging info to share? Please post in the moderated comments below 😊

Note: Each time I post while doing this series (may it be a short series, but if so, for positive reasons), I’ll post one or more links to posts I feel are worth seeing or reading. Some will be COVID-19 specific, some just uplifting, some encouraging via exercise or nutrition etc, but all within the rubric of what we’re all facing tougher ❤️

    • I hadn’t even realized it was “sorta” taboo by some artists, but lots of watercolor work I like is done by artists I like from both camps of thought in using it. It definitely tints things beautifully! Usually 😊
