No medium can match the delicate luminosity of transparent watercolor. As most artists know watercolor can be a hard medium to master as it can be unforgiving and unpredictable. Yet no other medium can match the delicate luminosity of transparent watercolor. Works from the Taos Watercolor Society artists capture that luminosity in portraying winter scenes that will warm your heart.
Watercolor pigment is ground in gum, usually gum arabic and as is known for its transparency. However it can be made opaque by mixing with a whiting and in this form is known as body colour, or gouache; it can also be mixed with casein, a phosphoprotein of milk.
One basic difference with painting in oil or acrylic and watercolor is that whites are created with opaque white while in painting in watercolor white is often created by leaving out color and letting its background white paper create its white. Your will see this technique in many of the Winter Watercolor Wonders works of art.
The Watercolor Society was founded in 1992 and has promoted its members works through various exhibitions and is committed to the public’s further understanding of transparent water media as an exciting and collectable art form.
TWS signature member, Jinx Wright has had her work “Vibrant Gorge” juried into the Kansas City Watercolor Society National Exhibition. The show hangs at the Mary R. Koch Art Center in Wichita from Nov 17th to Dec 18th, 2017.
