Watercolor on CP

I am continuing to try new techniques.. This time I stretched the paper as usual, but then re sized it with a mix of 1 part Gum Arabic to 4 Parts Water. I think Its a bit too much Gum Arabic because the watercolor doesn't get absorbed on the paper at all.

The result is interesting. The paint stays workable longer (thats the good news), but because it doesn't absorb, it lifts really easily, great for fixing errors, but makes glazing a real challenge (the bad news)

Great use of watercolour! I really like the blotchiness of the colours (which makes the painting very lively) and the linework (which defines the face and captures the likeness very well). Faved. :D

I have featured this deviation in my journal as a thumbnail because I like it and want my watchers to see it.

If you object to your work being displayed in this manor - I have every respect for you and will remove it as soon as I receive a note from you asking me to remove it.

Keep up the really great work.

Andy

Thank you... actually, some of the drawing has been added later, over the paint, to emphasise

i always love work that looks unfinished and rough, it somehow gives it more life than would a finished piece. nice work..

I call it mystery... I like to make paintings that leave something for the viewer to add. It gets them involved in your art.

Man, I have no idea what you're talking about "stretched the paper, resized it, gum arabic...", I'm really sorry.
However, I like the painting and your style in general and will continue to watch your efforts and results with joy!

Just goes to show that you don't have to understand to appreciate... Art is one of those wonderful things that can appeal to every person, and in entirely different ways. Its one of the joys of being an artist

As you stated already the results are really interesting and in my opinion great, especially I like the fact that you work as an real artist and do not do boring cold photo-realistic work and keep in your paintings the whole the elements that matter the most and give your opinion on the specific subject.
What many people (who draw and paint) do not realize what art is about, they often start from e.g. the left eye and finish it at the bottom.That has no method no actual technique and in the end you have learned nothing important at all. Art needs a lot thought process, solving problems, wondering always why this and why that.
++++In a few words an one must do the opposite of what a machine does++++

Thank you for the kind comments. I have been experimenting with watercolor, and if you look at my gallery, you will see that there are a number of techniques I have tried over the past year. I am really excited about what I am doing at the moment. Its different, and achieves a lot of the aims that I have for my art. All I have to do is fine tune it over the next twenty years or so :)
