Using Medium in your Medium
This week we explore Watercolor mediums. Wait a minute, isn't watercolor the medium? Yes, "Medium" has many meanings. First it describes the materials that the artist chooses: watercolor, oil, acrylic, pencil, etc. Next, it is an additive product within the paint choice. And about 40 other definitions regarding seances, sizes, and qualities. Today we explore the paint additives which also include plenty of choices - granulating, iridescent, lifting, ox gall, texture, Gum Arabic and just "medium". Second, we choose one to use in a fun Northern Lights painting. You will want to do a bunch of these as it is a fast, fun, serendipitous technique.
