Melted wax and watercolor: 2 of my favorite things. I'll be showing this new body of work at the October 6th ArtWalk with my 604 artist group at Beyond the Box. We will all have new work, so it will be exciting!
Watercolor is my first love when painting plein air in my gardens in the summer.
“Art Escapes” by Dory Kanter was revolutionary in my use of watercolor. She recommends working in triads. Basically what that means is using variables from each of the primary colors Red, Yellow and Blue. I've been using her approach for several years. It really makes painting not only easier and more focused, but creates exciting harmony to my work.
I was curious to see the results if I used all 4 triads on one subject, Stargazer lilies. I haven't decided which one I like. I'm wondering if it depends on my mood.
