Water & Color With Olga Peregood

Blog

Registration for my online workshops “Unlock Endless Summer” is closed. Thank you everyone who joined us! 

Recently I was making a research on how to frame my watercolors. It’s nice to find your style how you do that.

“The best way to learn is by practice” I learn from Bev, our local legend and my artist friend. Bev showed me million ways you can frame your watercolors not only by white/silver frame in a glass. Her collection of watercolors and ways her paintings framed are overwhelming.

I was impressed by stretching watercolors on a canvas. Did you know about that?

My watercolors on canvas looks extremely bright and gallery look. The only thing you can’t crop the painting once it finished. You should decide on a size of a finish result earlier. Yes, it looks like acrylic painting because we used to see acrylic paintings bright and on canvas.

But if you look and see it is watercolor and all of those wonderful watermarks, transparency and flow are here!

Bev shared little secrets how to make watercolors on canvas by yourself and so cheap for materials. I have one more crispy white canvas I just made waiting me to paint something “summerly“!
