    Hello, I am a new member. I started back painting when I retired in 2011. Many years ago I painted in oils, but the smells really gave my sinus a fit. I finally gave that and many years later I started playing around with photo manipulation and digital art. Over time that just made me miss the feel of...

  • Varnishing Watercolors

    OK, I decided to start a new thread so we can find posts about varnishing watercolors easily. If any of you have tried it out there, please let the rest of us know how it's working for you. Just as a refresher, I glue my 300lb cold pressed paper to a panel - usually MDF board or gatorboard using...

  • Re: Framing Watercolors for galleries

    I, too, love breaking the rules when it suits me and have been following this interesting conversation. I work in watercolor with a lot of texture from collage and framing without glazing would be a good thing. How do you think the paper support lasts in the long term with the protection of mat and glazing...

  • Varnishing watercolors

    Anyone else out there varnish their watercolor paintings? I've been doing this for almost 10 years now, and I love the way acrylic varnish makes my paintings look - rich colors with no reflection. Let me know how you varnish your watercolors or if you'd like to know how I do it.

  • Re: When your signature makes your Watercolor a mix media

    TJH, I am a traditional painter, but I really don't like being told exactly what to do with my art - sounds like you're in that boat too. There are all kinds of limitations - even with galleries. They like to tell me to paint what they can sell, but I'm disinclined to do that as well. Why...

    Hey TJH... Great point - I hear ya! For now, I'll have to enter non-media specific competitions. When the rules change, I'll submit varnished stuff to WC comps.

  • Varnished Watercolors

    I'm a bit frustrated... just looked at the prospectus for AWS, and they take no varnished entries. I've been mounting my watercolors to board and varnishing them for quite some time, and not only does it make framing easier, but the results are not easily confused with giclee prints, nor do I...
