Watercolor brushes - who are the best?

Watercolor paint can be fun and exciting. One of the questions I often hear is, "the brushes is the best, and should I buy those with natural or synthetic filament brushes." There are many brands of brushes watercolor on the market, and the choices can seem endless. I will be summarized some of what I learned on the subject, but there are many books and articles on the topic if you want to go further in detail. A trick is to buy the best brushes, you can afford. The easiest way to become familiar with those that you select is the painting of practice with them!

Watercolour of natural hair brushes are often made by hand and the most profitable. They have ridges in the filaments (hair) which hold more than painting. This allows less than traits that tends to produce a clearer, more fresh paint. These brushes are made from the hair of the Kolinsky Sable, Camel, red sand, to name a few and can be very expensive. Others are made of a mixture of hair natural and synthetic and work very well. These brushes are strictly synthetic may function correctly, and I suggest that you buy some of each category if you can afford to do so.

As you select your brushes, it is important to purchase those manufactured specially for the watercolour. They will be rounded or flat. My suggestion is to start with a tour # 12, # 8 round, # 5 rounds and a Tower # 2. The number is small, small brush. (The range of numbers between # 1 and # 24). There are also brushes still more small ranging from 0 to 000 which I would not recommend. They are the smallest details, which you can achieve very well with a good quality brush towers, which comes at a time, size 2.

Some watercolorists do not use one of the smaller round brushes and paint well without them. I personally use a brush of # 1 and # 2 in addition to the larger mentioned, because I paint a lot of small details.

I also suggest that you buy a 1/2 inch flat, a flat of 1 inch and a two-inch plate (used for egg laying of large laundry/glazes). Smaller flat brushes are useful for the manufacture of straight lines and small washes.

There are many sets of "beginner" Watercolor Brush, and art supply stores are happy to help with your selection as well. A last word on the care of your brushes. Wash in warm soapy water, then reshape boards by hand. The improvement of the care they receive, longer they will last.

Watercolour Painting Corrections are possible!

For many aspiring watercolorists shy away from this medium, fearing errors can be corrected. When painting with oil or acrylic, paint can be scraped from the canvas and then painted. In artistic creation with watercolor, pigment percolate in the watercolor paper, apparently stay there forever. Armed with a couple of useful tips, the fear of the Watercolour can be removed, allowing the artist to paint in a relaxed and confident manner.

The first thing to consider is which colors are colors coloring and which are not. The colours of staining include Alizarin Crimson and blue Winsor, to name a couple. These colors are not completely "lift" of the paper, while the transparent true garance pink and blue Cobalt will be. There are many other colors and their properties, to consider and I recommend to practice with your all favorite palette in which pigments will remove easily and which will not.

The second consideration when talking about changes to a watercolour, is the use of a good quality watercolor paper. This cannot be overemphasized. There are many brands and weight of paper that allows to choose, and I prefer a 140 lb, cold pressed paper. This is my personal preference and it brandishes to lift, but experimentation will guide you to your own favorite. Just use paper good markets if attempting to raise color. Some of the top layer of the paper will be amended and to lesser documents will not be to wastewater treatment. You will be pleased that you have selected the higher rank of watercolor paper!

Now that you know that you will use a high calibre and staining paints watercolor paper, you are ready to experiment with the lifting of the colors. Start your trial with the brush of the artist. Dip your brush into the drinking water and more than unloading. Then take your brush and the area to be amended with circular brush strokes, Blot and checking that you are going. If this eliminates all the pigments, switch to a soft brush - see and repeat this process with a smooth, circular motion. Continue the spot and check your work, that you pass.

Once the corrected area has dried, try to paint this spot. If the surface of the paper is not ben modified too much, it will easily accept new painting. Careful and prudent lifting will leave the most intact area. Hard cleaning can cause goes through the paper leaving a hole. To make a test. It's fun and you will build your confidence as a watercolourist.

The painting is cracking on my painting!

"Which causes cracking in oil painting which is often in ancient paintings?" is one of the most common questions I am asked.

This phenomenon of small cracks in the oil painting is known as cracking and is usually caused by the drying time and environmental conditions which has been the subject of art.

It is not in the 20th century with our current heat and air conditioning methods that have enabled us to live in a fairly constant indoor temperature and humidity. Prior to this, households were the most common method of heating a home and an open window was the way to cool. This fluctuation in the environment puts stress on a work of art. Painting in oil and the media, either the canvas or wood, actually expands and contracts.

Another factor is that artists create generally paints oil by the superimposition of the colors. This layering process means that the paint has different drying times. Also, this is 1841 that paints were available to the artist in metal tubes. Prior to this, the artists had grind pigments and mix them oil which meant that oil to pigment ratio was not necessarily consistent color from one to the other, which also affected the drying time.

Now, think of these as similar layers to the tectonic plates of the Earth. These plates are always expanding and contracting according to stress that he meets. This movement over the centuries have caused mountains to be formed, and earthquakes to wreck havoc. This is what happens to the layers of paint, but instead of an "earthquake of painting", you see a maze of cracks in the paint. These cracks may appear on the whole painting or only in a localized area. It is just a natural process of ancient paintings.

The value of art is not affected by cracking unless it is very serious, with large cracks and loss of the paint. Restore can usually address a serious problem. Most of the time, cracking stabilizes when art is in a modern house or business.

If cracked paint field has a centre and expands out like a spider's Web, then the canvas suffered trauma such as being hit or Redlight. The canvas that many not have been perforated, but over a period of time that the stress of the evolution of the environment will expose the hidden damage. A good conservator can help to stabilize and support this area.

Enjoy your ancient painting and the history it represents!

Vermeer of Delft - how to assess the real paintings in museums around the world

Vermeer painted in a slow and careful manner, producing about two paintings in a year complete. Worldwide there are only about 36 paintings by Johannes Vermeer of Delft.

Some people fell in love with the magic and the paintings of Vermeer radiation and decided to travel around the world, of Boston in Dresden and Dublin in Washington DC, who roam the Earth. Probably the best are exposed in the Vienna, Amsterdam and the Hague. This type of Tower and wide-eyed fan of pilgrimage is quite possible that virtually all of the tables is now located in public collections and can be seen during the hours after the purchase of the ticket.

Do you recognize a work of his young style, when Vermeer was about 20 in 1653? Or it is in fact a late work such as Dublin?

Standing in front of a Vermeer real painting... What can we really see and what you fully appreciate? What is do you see the technical magic in the way it has used the paint, layer on layer of glazing with light bouncing between these layers? He used wet-in-wet, wet-le-sec on a part of the painting?

What can be recognized within the image, what is the history, psychology and it can distinguish between physical objects? What is the level of reality? How this "photographic reality" linked to its list of private property, which he left after his death in 1675? Many viewers have the idea that that shows us Vermeer are views of his own house with a marble floors and all. In fact, it sometimes is painting fantasy rooms, upgrade of the Interior by filling with non-luxury items does not: musical instruments, architectural details...

And that say it means of scenes and objects, based on what we think now and according to the knowledge available of current books of his day and age... what would be the meaning be scenes represented by Vermeer according to contemporary sources?

Do you actually the fullness of artistic choices and Visual tricks he put in to raise a painting in a work of great art?

If you do, visualization can be a thrill of a lifetime.

If you find that you are slightly lacking in it, you can immerse yourself in serious art books and arrive to the air after two months of reading. You can also read the novel of a young girl with a Pearl Earring and don't know how many false factual it contains. Alternatively, you can click widely on the Internet and see what you get in terms of knowledge, theories of fantasy and misinformation.

Finally, you can ask a specialist standing next to you and see what can provide knowledge and passion. In order to really "get it", it can take a specialist to learn to see and to fully appreciate. I am this type of art historian.

Vincent Van Gogh: how to get the most of your museum visits in Holland

Two great Vincent van Gogh collections exist side by side in the Netherlands. How is this possible? This is the story of two great collectors and collections:

The first, visionary is Helene Müller, born 1869, who married the rich industrial, Mr. Kröller and thus, according to Dutch custom, appointed Mrs Kröller-Müller. As the couple was incredibly rich that they bought a vast hunting area and built a luxurious villa-cum-hunting lodge and detailed plans for major museums on their property to house the collection of modern art collected by Helene. With almost unlimited funds, an impeccable taste and Mr. Bremmer as Advisor main art side of it, it began to buy works by Juan Gris, Piet Mondian and many other names of artists internationally famous. These works of art were still affordable at the time.

Then came the economic collapse of 1933 and evaporated in their capital of the company. With foresight, the Dutch State took over the land and the art collections and support for the construction of the small museum to house the large collection and then opened the Museum and Wildlife Park to the public as a celebration of the interaction between the Nature & s. Subsequent administration added new wings and designed and filled with a vast sculpture park which is almost unparalleled in the world. A visit to the Park is a treat. It needs a car to go there, out in the middle of nowhere.

The collector, Theo van Gogh, is known worldwide as the brother floating Vincent. During his life, Vincent van Gogh is way of the market that he managed to sell one or two paintings. All other works, he painted finished with his brother Theo, who considers the paintings sent by Vincent Theo as a fair exchange for the steady stream of Theo in Vincent money. Theo also wanted Vincent of friendship with the circle of the Impressionists () modern in Paris to Exchange paintings as the basis for a gallery for modern art, designed by Theo. The company was never realized due to his premature death.

Theo died just one year after Vincent and Theo widow launched a PR campaign make name of Vincent famous around the world. She wrote to art dealers and sent paintings to be exhibited and sold around the world. And it began publishing the famous volumes of letters by Vincent. The sandwich of the two: Art & letters had Vincent the first artist in the world that can be followed in the life and career and art almost weekly.

Paintings by Vincent van Gogh subsequently sold all over the world by the widow of Theo how shine as ambassadors of incredible lives of artists and artistic genius. Can also go to the MOMA, NYC and see starry night, and in London, we see wonderful sunflowers.

These works of art by Vincent and his contemporaries from the collection of the family are now beautifully exposed in Amsterdam, the Dutch State has come to terms with the family of Van Gogh to erect a building and to take care of staffing and running costs. Added to this core collection are works of art that inspired Vincent and often mentioned in the letters from Vincent to Theo. Subsequently been collected are also works of Expressionist painters Dutch and German Expressionists who defends Vincent. They dare to go where no man ventured before.

(A few words on how to pronounce his name in Dutch: South of the great rivers, where he was born, the "g" is soft and aspirated.) (North of these rivers, where he has lived and worked as a young man 'g' is hard, almost Scottish as compensation loudly back a throat.)


Art historian has published many works and has a large capacity to share with others, his great passion for the history of art, while sharing ways to increased perception.

With a little luck, I can take you to two locations, Amsterdam and Otterlo and you give a fascinating and riveting on-site conferences on history, art history and appreciation of art.

What are the Options to consider before buying a field tent

The majority of field available suppliers of art today Trestles ranges of all shapes and sizes, but because there are so many available today can get a tiny bit confusing if you are an artist aspiring, departure and gather your materials for recreation, such as paint en plein air. You want to get the better of your hobbies or indeed profession to choose the right options your needs will help you to get and install in your artwork much more productive.

When considering the work on the ground and an easel to help you keep in mind the environment that you can work as for paints which dry too hastily, you have to think about transportation and storage when you have finished up. For most of watercolors and acrylics that dry quickly enough, you have only to consider what size of easel of field that you need. If you are looking to produce more large pieces of work to outside, then it is generally advisable to opt for a duty more heavy easel that overthrow at the slightest hint of wind.

You must consider where you could use your easel from field and what types of environments, you may encounter. If you are looking for painting large landscapes or views you prefer can choose an easel that is light and portable. Most of the art supplies overcome this by offering alternatives light metal for wooden Trestles over traditional conjure images in his mind. A trestle with adjustable legs that adapts to any surface soil is greater in more rural circumstances.

Another important factor is the robustness of the easel of field that you choose. This is part of the earlier suggestion of the consideration of weight. If your personal methods of making art are delicate and complex and then again a lightweight easel might be perfect for you. On the other hand if you are very direct with your surface, with the help of large brushes and great overlay and surface pressure, you might be better to consider a more robust trestle to resist the pressure and to ensure that get you the best results.

It is obvious that if you are a frequent artist or professional then it is essential that you consider the quality best option in the long term, coupled with higher quality materials, your tent could potentially be very long if you are willing to spend $ just for her. Students and people new to the art can alternatively try a cheaper bridge to see how they get before something which could be a little to specialized for them.

The voices in my head.

As an artist your voice your style of painting, many budding artists are still experimenting to find their own special voice, for some, it takes years of practice, because it's almost immediately. I recently read an article on the research of artistic voice. Most of what was if you want to achieve greatness and renowned artist then must try to find your own, original voice that will make your work so distinctive that you blow away the competition derived.

On the surface, this is sense, of course, that you should not slavishly emulate the style of a particular artist, how could it be your voice if your work is inseparable from the artist that you inspired? As it is that I started to have my doubts, ideas, such as police work to any suspicion to be influenced for example to other artists. Yet again, it seemed logical but as I thought more about it, I realized that a course frustrating that could be. In my opinion, that the question is whether we control to define what is our voice, can we force to adopt or reject specific styles or elements of our art we? Also is to achieve a completely original style at all costs the only way for rise of the derived quagmire that is the majority of contemporary art?

I believe that in the former, the answer is no, you are what you are as an artist if you forces yourself to work in a manner that is deliberately contrary something that nobody else did then you are not finding your voice, you're him refusing. Your voice is inherent to you and will complete this voice in the best possible.

.. .and it? Well... that just might be true, but it is then worth? On the conclusion, remember your voice, lot of art came to you so what is the likelihood that you can find this original style without end to things like stripping of cows, stacking cans of soup or dragging your bed in the gallery. You can achieve success and fame you want but who are your voice? I doubt it.

Deliberately and mechanically copying a style is clearly dishonest and it'll show you, but also to turn your back on your instinctive to be original at any price inclination is dishonest. Keep practicing, allow your creativity free rein, be true to yourself and your art become so that it must be. We do not all the famous artists, but we can be honest with our art.

Copy, do not imitate, just let you go, persevere and your art shines.

Watercolours of beautiful flowers

Watercolour can capture flowers in beautiful manner. The transparency of the medium allows the artist to use it to his advantage, capturing the delicate complexities of the flower. If painted the meaning of "full air" doors, or a still life in his studio, flowers offer unlimited possibilities when he painted in watercolour.

I would like to share some of my color preferred with you and encourage you to use your own as well. For many years, I've included real garance pink, blue cobalt, green and yellow Aureolin Viridian on my palette. Mixture of two of these together will give you a clean and fresh color transparent that you trust not to transform "muddy." Practice different combinations of these four colors to see what your results will be and keep a chart of these samples of mixture in the vicinity. Jot down the colours have been used next to each experience for your own reference. I also use Burnt Sienna and when they are mixed with blue Cobalt makes a soft fresh grey.

Another consideration in flowers in watercolor painting is how to mix the Greens whose natural appearance. I suggest to an another graph sample with various combinations (of the above colors) with Viridian green as your starting point. Then try this new exercise substituting Winsor green for the Viridian. Winsor Green is a dark green, more dynamic, but not "flying" paper as easily as Viridian, if you want to make changes. Only do combinations of two colors, that the addition of only one-third can result in an opaque "mud." I prefer to mix my own Greens and find their more realistic and true to the color found in nature.

Watercolor paper, my personal preference is 140 lb cold pressed watercolor paper Arches. In my view, that he brandishes or suppression of some paintings, with a soft brush or a watercolor brush to "thrown". This is something with which to experiment. Some colours are "spots" and will not completely lift your paint. Keep track of these and use them with caution. Painting with some Watercolour brushes you feel uncomfortable, after having tried brands and sizes. Art supply stores most will guide you to this area.

You may want to begin by placing of fresh cut flowers in a vase with a light source with one hand. This will be their shadows to become one of your design elements. Do not place your vase in the center of the paper. Put a little offset will be a much more interesting composition. Fill your paper with your flowers and leave a certain drift off the coast of the page. Vary your borders; have some hard and other soft provide a contrast. Let some of your mixture of colors directly on the page. Use a range of values, the white of the paper to the dark rich. Try even as regards your painting reversed to get a feeling where changes should be made.

Carefully consider the petals of the flower. Observe how they curl and how each is unique in shape and size. Look closely at the stem. They are straight or that they bend slightly? Are there variations in colour? How the leaves are attached to the plant? Keep these thoughts in mind that you paint and take advantage of the process. Don't worry about the final result. You can go back and make changes later. For the moment simply to have fun.

Who was the mother of Michelangelo?

Francesca Buonarroti 1456-1481

Mother of Michelangelo

Di Francesca Neri di Miniato del Sera was 16 years old when she married Lodovico Buonarroti in 1472, providing a dowry of 416 guilders. A year later, she gave birth to her first son Lionardo. And then fifteen months later, his second son, Michelangelo was born so that she and her husband lived in Caprese.

Francesca gave birth to three sons: Buonarroto in 1477, Giovansimone in 1479 and finally submits in 1481. She died after the birth of supports at the age of 25. When Michelangelo was 6.

I do not think that Francesca lived a very easy life. I can imagine while she was busy making and raising babies husband complainer stalled, Lodovico Buonarroti, has been constantly touting the day where his five sons would become rich businessmen so that they could bear the burden of the restoration of the fortunes of the family and name that he himself was refused or unable to exercise.

Relationship of Francesca with Michelangelo

There were many researchers who suggested that Michelangelo is psychologically affected by the loss at the beginning of his mother. This includes William Wallace, who says in Michelangelo: themes of maternal love, loss and separation abound in art and poetry of Michelangelo, and yet he mentions his real a single mother, when he recommended that his name his child nephew "" after your father, and if a girl after our mother. ""

Michelangelo temperament was such that he was never comfortable unless he moved, do something, in collaboration with his hands. There is no reason to believe that he was not the same way as a young boy when healthy. It is likely if Michelangelo was alive today would probably be said that it hyperactive, possibly a diagnosis of deficit of attention (ADD) and drugs.

So try to imagine his young mother with a flock of young boys to take care of, someone who was not in the best of health, trying to take care of his early hyperactive son.

We know by Vasari that Michelangelo loved drawing when he was young. What better way to keep a young Michelangelo served to give him a chalk and a wall or piece of paper to draw only to discover not only kept quiet, but he was also very good, a natural artist.

Importance of Michelangelo puzzle

Needless to say, as if it were Francesca who led Michelangelo drawing, no there is no story without it.

I also think that suggested in exhibit 8 - dream of life of Michelangelo, it is possible that mother of Michelangelo could unintentionally give an impossible set of rules to follow - to follow his dream of becoming a painter great fresco but also to obey his father.

And then there is the question of the images on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

We know there is more potential self-portraits Michelangelo's ceiling and a portrait of the father of Michelangelo, in my opinion, playing the role of the Prophet Jeremiah.

Then why would not Michelangelo want to paint a picture of his mother on the ceiling, especially if it was that which led him in drawing and painting in the first place. But forget might it not even what it looked like 30 years after his death?

But say that it his honour on the ceiling. Which of the 343 people is it?

My own guess is the mother of Michelangelo Francesca is a woman who plays an important role to determine what the ceiling is supposed to mean and is therefore an important part of the history of Michelangelo's Puzzle.

Interesting facts about Francesca Buonarroti

There is a story that was transmitted through the family that Francesca was thrown horse that pregnant while of Michelangelo. Some have suggested that it was rather lame for the rest of his life from the injuries she received in the fall.

Even if we know very little about Francesca, we do not know that his family was part of the Rucellais, a family of Florence who had a history of supporting the arts.

Search for David Clark to solve the mystery of the chapelle Sixtine began after his wife died shortly after they began a piece of puzzle from the ceiling. After five years of extensive research, he realized that the ceiling is a brilliant diversion which hides a secret message by an overwhelming of the eye. As a puzzle, it attracts take us hundreds of pieces together to give a sense of the whole. However, its meaning can be found by putting the pieces together, but thanks to find a piece missing from Michelangelo: the piece is missing in the history of his own life.

You contact Michelangelo's Puzzle in 90 weekly parts which, when put together will reveal the meaning of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel on 1 November 2012, the 500th anniversary of the dedication of the ceiling. Follow the story to http://sistinepuzzle.com/.

What is a painting knife?

A painting knife is a knife blunt with a flexible steel blade. The knife edges are not sharp that therefore even called a "knife" his work is not cut, but to paint. Between the handle and the blade there is often a large crank designed in the shape of the steel of the knife just below the handle part. This area of crank is designed to keep the hand of the artist off the coast of the surface of the painting, allowing free space in which to work.

These types of knives come in many different styles, shapes and sizes with a wood or rubber handle. Each form of the blade is designed for flexibility. One of the most common forms of a painting knife is the "trowel" form, which is an excellent form for use with modelling pastes, gels and mortars. Other triangular forms are best used for drawings in the paint or objects.

However, the most common use of a knife of painting is just to paint with a knife in instead of using a brush. Painting of knives can be an excellent tool to generate a rich on the canvas as texture for the artist is located in the large areas of color on the surface of support.

Nobody really knows when or how these types of knives came into use, but the terminology of a painting from a palette knife knife is often used interchangeably. The palette knife, however, is more right than the painting knife and is most often used to paint on the palette, mixing as well as scraping the paint off the coast of the palette. It is not as deep or large a crank as the painting knife, because it is not used to paint on the surface of the canvas or support. You will remember the painting knife crank allows enough space between the painting and the hand of the artist support to allow the artist to paint without the hand on the canvas. It is crucial to be able to apply oils, acrylic or any other media without interference from your hand in the way.

Many popular artists have painted full size of the paintings with only a painting knife, although several different styles and sizes of knives are used to do this, a brush is not used throughout the process. Other artists will use the knife to paint to create different effects and textures in the painting itself, while using the brush in other areas. Fundamentally, the use of the brush or knife depends on the style of the artist and the effect they seek to create within the painting.
