  • The beauty of green color shades.

    The green color is all around us, and it's a good idea to develop the expertise in mixing its different shades. Mixing green colors into harmonious shades can be a real challenge for the painter. Green is one of the most pleasing colors on the color wheel, but too much green in a painting is considered 'bad taste' and could be annoying. Using a limited palette has many benefits. Fewer colors mean you mix most of the colors yourself: two blues and two yellows, so all the greens on the painting look related and are harmonious. The variation of green in the cool and warm shades creates a color harmony that is pleasant to the viewer's eyes. Take a look at the painting demo video, just for inspiration! #watercolorpainting #watercolorflowers #paintingart #paintingvideo #sreamofdreamsdesign_blog

  • Where to begin a pet portrait?

    When you think about painting an animal portrait, ask yourself: What holds your attention to an animal's appearance? Cats are like a human who has their personality. You may have heard that cats and dogs and their owners look alike. One of the behavioral traits of a cat is its eyes which make the attention to the viewer - will the cat look softly at the viewer, with intensity, or not look at all. A good cat's pose is crucial for painting too. #watercolorpainting #catpainting #paintingdemo #streamofdreamsdesign_blog

  • Which paper quality is best for loose watercolor painting?

    The watercolor painting highly depends on the paper quality. Compared to cheaper paper, the quality cold-press paper absorbs and holds multiple paint layers and can stand up to heavier brushing and paint removal without tearing or pilling. This paper is more suitable for a loose painting style, not detailed artwork. There are two grades of watercolor paper: artists' quality and students' quality. The artists' quality, known as archival paper, is acid-free. Likewise, the paper must be acid-free because the acidic paper will turn yellow and break down quickly. If you want to save your painting for decades, you need to use acid-free paper. The cheaper paper does not mean it's not a good paper to practice. If you're a beginner or just practicing, the students' quality paper is for you.
