Moved my Blog

Hi there. As the title of this post says, I have indeed moved to my official page for blogging. I have started blogging a little more seriously now. This blog is not only for penning down my thought on art, life and watercolor, it is also for helping people with watercolor. So I have started writing on stuff that would help not only beginners, but also people who have experience with watercolor.

My previous post was on helping people begin with watercolor in the right direction. And my new post is on everything that you wanted to know about watercolor paper. In future I'll be posting about equipment, supplies, techniques, WIPS etc. And if you want me to write on any particular subject do let me know.

When you go to my new blog, a pop up would come up asking you to subscribe to my newsletter. In case you want to get regular updates on the posts I make, don't forget to subscribe to the newsletter.

That's all I had for now. See you at my new blog page.

Getting started with Watercolor

Though I paint in watercolor now most people are surprised to know that I actually started off with opaque mediums like oils and gouache early in my life. transparent Watercolor medium was always a mystery for me. Though I was drawn to the transparent medium and was always itching to work with it, I did not know where to start. In fact when I did my first watercolor it was so bad that I almost gave up. It took a little perseverance and curiosity to learn which kept me going. And now watercolor is something that I can not do without.

Often I am asked this question on how to paint in watercolors or how to begin with watercolors. This makes me go back to the time when I had these questions for which I found the answers in the hard way. So i thought of putting down a short write up on how to begin with watercolors.

I hope it helps.
