Did you try painting in watercolor and found it unforgiving and
difficult to control? Don’t give up, learn a fun way to paint in
watercolor that is totally forgiving, fresh and beautiful. Even a
beginner with little or no experience can turn out great paintings.
The solution to frustration with watercolor is a simple one. With clayboard or gessoed masonite, you
can wipe off the paint and start again. With watercolor on paper,
you probably found it difficult to change things once the paint was
dry. Not so with clayboard ( ampersand) and watercolor… this isn’t a problem because you
can totally work and rework the surface. This alone conquers the fear of
painting in watercolor and allows you the freedom to try new
techniques not always possible in regular watercolor.
Painting in watercolor on gessoed masonite or clayboard can be just
the thing YOU need to re ignite your interest in watercolor again. With only a
clayboard, a few paints, some acrylic brushes and common household
supplies even a beginner can finish paintings that anyone would be
proud to call their own.
Stop by for my demonstration at:( See my schedule) and meet Shanti Marie, one of South Carolina’s Master watercolorists and learn
this simple and easy way to paint in watercolor.
Below are examples of the two surfaces, Ampersand or Clay board is smooth and the other is gessoed masonite which gives you the choice for a textured surface or the boards can be sanded if you prefer a smooth finish.
