Water Color Painting
There are many types of painting you can do, and many artists will tell you that they prefer one type of painting over another. Though there are many people, like my father, that prefer to work with oils, there are some that love the look and style of water color painting. These are often softer colors, and can give a beautiful style to a scene that might look brash with oil paints. The great thing about water color painting is that there is a little more room for error. This is a great way to introduce a young artist to the world of painting strokes and color mixing. Water color painting can be the easiest and hardest type of painting to do.
There are some simple tricks you can learn to do this style of painting, and if you want to take a few lessons, you will find that you might just have a talent for the medium. You will find that you can make bold painting by using a little water, or you can go with a soft pastel look by watering your colors down a little more. Before you can begin water color painting, you have to get the right supplies. Water colors are relatively inexpensive, and you can buy just about any type of canvas you wish to use. In fact, you can buy heavy stock paper for water color painting, and you may find that this is the perfect way to learn how to paint without wasting a lot of money on expensive canvas.
You can find great supplies at a local craft or art supply store in your area. You may also find these supplies online, and you may find that you get a better price that way. If you have the bug and think you may be painting for a long time to come, you should buy in bulk to save a huge chunk of change. If you like the look of water color painting, you can buy them for your home. You may be able to tackle this on your own if you like to create. You may be surprised that even the most inept artwork can have a special look when framed and hung on the wall in your home. Make sure you incorporate some of the colors in your home décor into your water color painting and you may find it to be a great accent in any room.
