New Watercolor Technique - Outlining With Glue - Holiday Cards with Watercolor Ornaments
An Easy Way to Keep Paint Inside An Area
In this lesson, you'll use common school glue to outline your subject. Once dry, this allows you to paint freely - adding color, working wet on wet - without having the color run. This is a fun and easy way to produce cards for everyone, whether this is your first watercolor ever or you just want to play with your colors.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
