  • Color That Can Be Saturated and Subtle—Who Knew?

    I adore color—deep ruby reds, bold blues, verdant greens, rich golden yellows...I could go on and on, but one thing that I often forget in my zeal is that color is not just a matter of hue. Saturation and subtle color layers also play a huge part in how a successful painting comes together. That's...

  • Like Seeing Myself in the Mirror

    Drawing by Edward Schmidt. When I was the one in charge of my infant cousin, I would always scramble frantically for ways to keep him entertained. Toys, sounds, and funny faces—I tried everything. But the most memorable way I kept him happy was by plopping him in front of a mirror. He'd move...

  • Courageous Color

    The final watercolor painting from Courageous Color with Eleanor Lowden Pidgeon . The versatility in watercolors, especially for painting in landscapes, is too great to be ignored, but sometimes can leave us wanting more intensity than transparent colors provide. Enter Eleanor Lowden Pidgeon with a bold...

  • Skies Don’t Have Brushstrokes In Them

    Watercolor artist Thomas Schaller achieves convincing and dynamic effects in his skies ( Salisbury Cathedral , watercolor painting). I know it is a bias, but sometimes I can't help thinking that painting skies belongs to a particular realm of watercolor painting . The medium just seems best suited...

  • Do’s & Don’ts of Artist Websites

    Self-Portrait by Kristin Kunc, oil on linen, 2011. As you probably well know, I'm online...a lot. And I'd like to think of myself as somewhat well informed about artist websites. I'm on them all the time—whether it is through an email someone sends me, a link on a blog I read, or my...

  • Watercolor posting

    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...

  • "Bury Brother"

    In this new painting, I'm trying to capture the bright New Mexico sun against my grandkids skin and clothes as they played at White Sands National Monument. It's transparent watercolor on a full sheet of 300 lb Arches rough. Some of the texture was created by applying acrylic molding paste prior...

  • "Fire in the Hole"

    One of the many benefits of living in Albuquerque are the hot air balloons. This watercolor shows the crew team inflating the envelope early one morning. My center of interest is the flame from the propane burner. I used 300 lb Arches rough. Matted the painting will fit a 28 x 22 inch frame.

  • "Different Tune"

    Another musician that we saw as we walked the New Orleans French Quarter last October. It seemed unusual to find a flute player on the street. This watercolor was done on 140 lb Arches stretched over a sheet of gator board. Matted and framed it will measure 28 x 22 inches.

    A memory of the French Quarter in New Orleans - this watercolor was painted on 140 lb Arches stretched over gator board - the painting is about 21 x 17 - when framed it will be 28 x 22 - Mardi Gras beads were added to help it look more like New Orleans
