Watercolor Advantages

November 7, 2018

 Here are ten reasons I like working in watercolor.

1.  Non Toxic:  you are using water not oil and there is no odor

2.  Very Portable:  there are really nice travel kits available or you can put your own together

3.  Very Affordable compared to other mediums

4.  Great for Recording Travels:  you can use your small travel kit to record memories

5.  Watercolor has a freshness, spontaneity, and delicate, luminous quality that you can not            get with other mediums

6.  Very Easily Cleanup: all you need is water and paper towel

7.  Watercolor Paint can be used over and over if you have a lid on your palette and a spray           bottle.

8.  Watercolor Paintings Dry Quickly, within minutes after finishing.  Oil paintings can take                 weeks to dry.

9.  Watercolor Works Well For Mixed Media in combination with pastel, pen & ink, pencil,

      and printing.

10.  The water, paint, and paper will do some of the work for you if you allow "happy                          accidents"

Happy Painting!
