Purity of water in watercolor

24 Feb 2009

Q: How does the purity of water I use in my watercolors affect the color of the paints?

A: The luminosity and clarity of your watercolors are ultimately affected by the type of water you use. If these factors are important to you, then I do recommend using distilled water. However, it's fine to occasionally use water from an outdoor source when painting landscapes on location.
