Paint and Paper: Making a Watercolor

6 thoughts on “Paint and Paper: Making a Watercolor”

  1. Cathy, I am an avid water color painter and I have become enamored with QoR Water color pigments. I am not so much into wet on wet but prefer the direct method of painting , working a section at a time. Much of my procedure rests on what I am painting and how I decide to go about it. So I do a lot of planning, much of which is carrying in my mind a picture days before ever touching brush to paper. then the fun begins.
    Thanks for your valuable insight,
    Richard Seisser

    • Hello Richard,
      Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed the article, and that you are liking QoR! I also tend to plan my paintings carefully before beginning, with paper and color selection dependent upon the subject, before the act of painting begins. And I find QoR brings great joy to the palette when it is time to paint!

    • Hi Tammy,
      We are so pleased you enjoy the articles! I suspect many painters who use watercolor love color and mixing paint just as much as we do. Watercolor paint is so beautiful. Articles like this one give me a goal for that joyous mixing research, and the opportunity to share what is discovered.

  3. Hi Cathy. Thanks for share with us your knowledge about these issues. I wonder if you have and if you can kindly send me a recipe or protocol to make of high quality watercolor paper, mould-made. I Will very much appreciate if you can provide me the exact proportions of components. Thanks in advance.
