Character Art – Emily







In this digital age, when one attempts to pick up a brush and paint, the feeling is like going backward in time to those days where artists can spend weeks and months doing a painting! You can spend all day working on a watercolour painting like any other art medium, but there is a limit to the number of layers you can apply with transparent watercolour. The more layer of paint you apply, the darker the colour becomes and the transparency decreases. You can rework and recorrect an acrylic or oil painting as many times as you like, but not really with watercolour. The challenge here is to acheive transparency and radiance in your painting, just like you want to taste a freshly baked cake straight from the oven! This medium requires our mind to be quick, accurate and be decisive when applying paint on paper!
