WCMaterialsThis is a bit of a “talky” video.

I don’t paint anything, I just show you supplies and talk about the differences between artist quality vs. student quality and recommend what I’d choose if I was just starting out in watercolours.

I don’t believe that you need to start with best quality materials when you’re just learning.

It can be a bit of a deterrent; when everything you’re using is so expensive, we tend to get more attached to favourable outcomes.

Favourable outcomes are not what learning watercolours is about.

It’s about painting. Period.

Just using the paint and brushes and learning how they flow together.

That’s the most important thing.

Honestly, I feel like I’ve wasted most of my life not knowing that this guy’s art existed. This guy, is Eyvind Earle. I’ve never encountered an artist who’s work makes me want so much. I just want all of it.     MINE. GIMME.     Disney Eyvind Earle was a long-time Disney concept & […]

I’ve been curious for awhile about the effects of certain household items on paint. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be posting my experiments.

No doubt Silvia is influencing a whole generation of painters to flow, splash, puddle and drip their way to beauty.

Salt provides a variety of unpredictable texturizing results depending on the size and spread of the grains and adds a crystallization that is incredibly effective at evoking ice and snow.

Allowing the medium to paint itself through the help of pouring, spraying and encouraging the pigment to move where you want with water.

Stop marketing to other artists. Other artists will never value your work as much as non-artists do, as much as collectors do, as much as publishers do.
