  • Capturing the beauty of spring colors by painting with watercolor.

    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 of the color wheel, but too much green in 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!

  • Where to begin a pet portrait?

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

  • The Loose Watercolor Painting Style

    The watercolor painting technique highly depends on the paper quality. The secret of a good quality paper is that it can hold multiple paint layers better than cheap paper. I have used a cold press Arches watercolor paper for this painting. This paper literally made for a loose painting style, and I am still getting used to painting on this type of paper. Experimenting with color combinations on the diverse paper quality, you can determine what better works for your painting technique. In this video, you will see the watercolor painting process of a Blue Betta fish. #watercolorpainting #watercolorartwork #paintingtechniques
