We’re so lucky to be able to get such great continuous bits of creative inspiration and knowledge online, and few are as valuable and applicable as those from Dianne Mize. She has a long distinguished creative history, links on her site and in many of my previous posts.
In this video (sometimes her tips are via a series of photos and text) she demonstrates glazing with watercolors – a tricky absolutely fascinating topic for me, since I’m new to the medium, and the resultant glazed colors are so beautiful!
My wife Sheila watched a bit of it with me and was totally impressed with her calm clear manner and very obvious expert but downplayed mastery.
Below is her the beginning work on top of her notan (shadows & lights) initial inlay, something she goes more into in her previous Quick Tip, # 314.
So not only does she explain drying times, how to lightly and evenly rewet to paint again each time (after a layer has dried), but takes the colors on the paper from their (near) opposites to the golden yellows seen in the photo beside her in-progress watercolor.
I’ve been tinkering and enjoying working with watercolors for just over a year, and I am continually humbled and thrilled to be learning (more like slowly absorbing) the processes Dianne brings, well, literally, to the table 😊
