Here is a small oil painting just started to be painted during today’s workshop organised for my German friend. For some of you it may look finished but it is not. Let’s see how it… More
My dear Friends. I recorded my first video about speed painting. I decided to create a new youtube account for my art because my idea is to have an international feedback now. My regular youtube is about vlogging in my native language so it is good to separate them from each other. I love watercolours and I would like to share here and on youtube my passion with you. If you like the film please give thumbs up and let me know your thoughts in the comment section. Below you will find the link which directs you to my video on Youtube.
Moi drodzy Widzowie! Dzisiaj przychodze do Was z filmikiem typu speed painting czyli malowanie w przyspieszonym tempie. I to jest moje pierwsze video tego typu i pierwsze na nowym kanale, ktory zdecydowalam sie zalozyc na youtube na potrzeby artystyczne. Mysle, ze jest lepiej oddzielic tematyke vlogowania od malowania a ponadto chce aby moj nowy kanal byl anglojezyczny. Kocham malowanie i nagrywanie filmow a szczegolnie lubie akwarele i kwiaty i chcialabym dzielic sie ta pasja z Wami, a moim szczegolnym zamiarem jest abyscie mogli sie takze czegos nauczyc. Prosze “lajkujcie” i komentujcie, napiszcie mi Wasze oczekiwania. Ponizej link, ktory przekieruje Was do mojego filmiku na Youtube.
I was just working on one commissioned painting and here it is. I have choosen this frame but not sure yet about it, because of a black color. What do you think?
Good quality art materials and all equipment is very nedded and helps to work easier, faster, more comfortable and efficient. That is why I just have bought this smal watercolor easel, because I wanted to have something like this and I wonder what quality those paints inside are. The whole thing is not too expensive (good for beginers) so I guess those are of student’s quality but it does not matter. I will check them later and let you know. I am waiting for the package and propably in the middle of March I will posts some thoughts as a user.
I just had such situation recently.
Here on the photo there is the last moment of painting being in progress before I took wrong decision and it finished his life in a dust bin!
I was painting a watercolor replique of my own oil painting “White magnolia” and when it was almost finished I decided to improve flower petals and what I did was to choose a color which was too warm and too red.
And below there is the new one, just started the same day…I felt more comfortable to paint, because I learned a lot. And I hope now, knowing all of my experiences you are finally ready to start as well!!!
To paint this watercolor I was inspired by my own oil painting which was painted some time ago as a part of my master thesis. I shared it on Facebook and immediately some of my friends loved it and asked me to paint it once again for them because the original one was not available any more and it was also too big (120 x 120 cm) as for their needs. So here it is. A brand new and this time it is a briliant watercolor (30 x 30 cm). Yes, I fell in love with this technique and that is why I dedicated this blog to document the creativity processes while using this water medium and of course to share a joy of watercolor art with you.
I like how watercolors splashing and flowing on a paper. I see it as benefits of this technique. Some people however find it difficult to control the purity of the concept of painting when they need a stroke of flat color and instead of this colors are mixing spontanously or moving in wrong directions. Perhaps you are also one of those strugling artist who admire other watercolor artist’s artworks but can not paint similiar one yourself. If yes I will comfort you, this is all about a process of learning how to paint using watercolors and hours of exercises and experiences how these paints works. Every medium has its own techniques and it is simply waiting to discover. But if you still can not achieve desirable effect maybe watercolors are not for you and you should try painting in e.g. oils.
I like silkiness, matt paper and strong, dark colors when needed. It is possible to achieve when you use artists quality paints. As for me this is the only choise. I believe that you are a beginer or someone who wants improve your knowledge and that is why you are just reading my blog so believe me I do not recommend use nothing what is suspiciously cheap or being bought in supermarket as a school set of paints for pupils. You will never achieve results like you can see on attached pictures. Watercolor is expensive technique but it is woths of a price knowing that all those paints are very efficient.
Here are a few close ups below. I like how watercolors splashing and flowing on a paper.
After a long time of absence when many milestone things happend in my life I have decided permamently refresh this blog and come back to writing about art (especially mine as I am a visual artist) but also I am an enthusiast of Polish history so sometimes I will tell you some interesting stories about it.
What interesting has happend recently?
I have started a new drawing project inspired Zentangle art. I like it very much because it has helped me to bit my artistic block.
Below you can see work in progress.
