Watercolor Artist Magazine

It feels like Christmas in April...I just received my copy of Watercolor Artist (June 2011). I am so excited to see my article in print! The title of my feature is "Little Pieces of Color". In the article I share the technique of watercolor stained paper collage. I begin with the staining of the Japanese papers, drawing of design, collage, and finish with painting. I have five additional paintings included in the article. The color reproduction is great.
I am delighted to be included in this publication! If you would like to order a copy of Watercolor Artist magazine, click here. The magazine is also available at most major book stores.
Happy Painting!
Brenda

  9. I did get the magazine and started reading your article.
    How fascinating that you are trying the "paper painting" technique in watercolor. I have been using Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson's paper painting In acrylic for about a year but had not really thought o trying something similar with watercolor! But why not!!! I wish one of the art catalogs would put out a packet of a variety of rice papers. They are not cheap. In acrylics I sometimes use coffee filters as one of the choices. And Elizabeth, of course, uses sheet music and newspaper that are tinted too. So much fun.

  13. Thanks to everyone for the delightful response! It's heart warming to know the article inspired and delighted you.

    I work in many different ways with varied tools. I enjoy the immediate results of sketching with ink and watercolor, transparent watercolor, and painting on tinted paper. Watercolor is so varied...the joy never ends!

    Happy Painting!
