PAINTING WITH THE WHITE OF YOUR PAPER
PAINTING WITH THE WHITE
OF YOUR PAPER
A seldom-discussed secret to creating luminous watercolor paintings is making the most of the white of your paper. The beauty of watercolor comes partly from its transparency, as the light shines through the pigment to the white paper beneath.
Judi Wagner and I feature our own work and that of other artists to show you how to use the white of your paper to tell the story in your paintings. Throughout, you’ll get extensive insights from the contributing artists on their creative processes and materials as well as instructions on particular painting techniques.
