Is water color painting difficult?
I've been wanting to pick up a new art form.
Well, I think it is hard because I am not an artist! So I guess it depends on your talent. My daughter (12 years) is a very good artist for her age. I have seen her art teacher instruct her to first draw the picture outline in pencil, then fill in with watercolor, then when the paint is dry outline it again with a sharpie. That seems to make it easier and the finished piece looks really nice! But I don't know you, maybe you are a great artist already and don't need any of that advice.
Yes its really hard, don't bother with it. It takes ages to work out which end to hold the paint brush. And the word "watercolor" what does that mean?
I hope this has helped. If not, write a blog about it.
After pencil drawing, which is considered the master's skill, watercolour is the most difficult painting form, the medium is often unpredictable, and very unforgiving, the artist always has to be alert to be able to manipulate 'accidents' before they ruin the painting.
Hi, It can be somewhat difficult.
You should take a few lessons because if you know how, it is not that difficult
I did one picture and it came out very nice
Just put the color on dark because it dries much lighter.
Thanks guys. I'll probably go back to oil painting and drawing then. I was just in an art gallery that had some really cool water color, so I thought I'd see. But it did look pretty difficult because of the unpredictability.
I think it's not what is really hard in making a art is that having a great idea and how to give that idea the proper emotions that can make your painting great.
Water Colour Painting is what I have experienced to be worthwhile time talking to the sun about what is happening in my food storage areas. Usually I paint when I know I would like to make some alterations to my diet. Like, "what about sea salt instead of regular salt" for the salad. Try watching cooking shows to reach: get through to go.
I have probably painted with most substances including, red wine, tea and chemical paints, I have painted with oils I have even made my own paints and dies but water colours are a big favourite.
I am able to create lovely pieces in minuets sometimes, this I cannot do with any other substance except perhaps water colour inks which are almost fluid water colour instead of being a block of pigment.
I find water colour easy to use and although ( MickS ) makes some very real points about using water colour it is also as Pablo Picasso once said "I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it."
The one thing you can guarantee when you say you can't do something is that you won't even try, so stop asking if it's difficult and give it a try you might be pleasantly surprised.
watercolor is a sorta like a cat. sometimes it comes to greet you and sometimes it sits with its back to you. oil paint is like a dog easily trained and stays were its put.
watercolor is science, a chemical reaction. you have ask the watercolor paint to go here or there. you ask it to mix with the reflected white light of the paper to create colors you could never mix and blossoms that make flowers green with envy. you have to forgive the paint for not being able to do what you want and forgive yourself for being imperfect. its a hard medium because the artist, the creator, does not have full control of the outcome.
personally i love it because it challenges me and praises my failures and successes.
I think you are looking at this issue completely incorrectly and asking the wrong question. Watercolour painting should be looked as fun and adventurous. What ever happens on the page is an adventure and a delight. Do not have high expectations. Produce a lot of paintings but, with the objective of having as much fun as possible. Then one day you will look at your paintings and say "Well Done!"
I have been doing acryllic paintings for over a year now and have managed to sell some abroad. I recently tried my hand at water colours and it is a highly skilled art. Timing is very important. The skill lies in getting the timing right to make some of the colours permeate each other ( wet on wet) and others to be strong bold and standing alone (wet on dry method). However, with much patience and perseverence you can achieve this. Best of luck with your new venture.
Not at all! Watercolor is a really fun medium to work with.

I, myself, love to mix mediums. My paintings seem to always have a better flow if I use more than one. My favorite so far is watercolor and acrylic, not mixed but used in the same piece of work. They seem to flow together really well, and the acrylic gives the watercolor an extra...

Usually small kids are made to colour with crayons. But I prefer water colour to crayons. Why crayons is made to be used by kids initially? This will make them think of water colour as very difficult to use. What your opinion about it?
