A- Z of Watercolour Techniques

A- Z of Watercolour Techniques
When we learn to write, we begin by learning to shape letters. We then join these together to form words, then words form sentences, sentences form paragraphs and paragraphs form stories. After all, we wouldn’t dream of expecting someone learning a new language to start by writing a novel! Yet when we are learning to paint we want to start by painting a picture. The act of simply colouring in shapes with washes doesn’t allow opportunity for the medium itself to be fully exploited. We know our arty alphabet is a few letters short, but it's nearly there!

Figure Drawing References Gripping Tutorials on How to Draw Hands | Maca is Rambling Sharebar The human hand, for some of us, is one of the most challenging things to master drawing. It is important especially for those who are serious about pursuing a career in drawing. Apart from being the primary focus of a character’s actions, the hand may also serve as one of the key elements that could make the emotions and mood of a character apparent through hand gestures. As someone who has been drawing for the rest of his life, I had my fair share of drawings with the character’s hands somehow hidden from view just to hide the fact that I can’t draw them.

How to Perfect your Impasto Painting I started out painting in a very controlled way. I’d always been heavily influenced by Lucian Freud and work that was hard won; photographic in a way but thick with paint. However when I moved back to Leicester from Bristol, it just wasn’t making me happy anymore. I literally bought canvases and big brushes, and decided to work on the head. I tried to make it more physical and expressive with thicker paint and took more chances; with the work I did before, I wasn’t taking a chance and suddenly I was working on something that could go wrong at any minute. Subjects I treat all of my paintings as ‘portraits’. With a subject that is quite emotive, I push myself to ‘feel’ paint rather than just see it as a mechanical device. Heads are my constant – the subject I go back to if I’m having a difficult time or want to push the work forward. My double portraits are about the relationship between two people in the same space.
