Watercolor Painting - How to Create Watercolors That Reach Beyond Reality Into Poetry

Watercolor Artists Who Paint Landscapes Share a Special Bond with PoetsArtists and poets are united in their love of nature. Nature sustains them, and creative individuals can never get enough. Watercolor artists depict a scene with a paintbrush loaded with color. The poet carefully selects words to evoke a picture in your mind's eye. It's for you to supply memories and associations that make the painting or poem a touchstone you simply must have."When a painted summer landscape can capture the warmth and restfulness and grace of this season, and perhaps even the rumble of distant thunder, then it begins to approach that tenuous edge of reality where poetry resides.

I would much rather be able to direct all my attention to creating my art while I am painting. And then, when I am done, I know just where to look to make sure my day doesn't get away from me.More Is Not Always Better.Personally, I've tried the new, wonderful electronic versions, but I haven't had good results. The mental and physical process of keeping appointments, goals and personal information in electronic devices, while quite common today, just doesn't seem like a good fit for me. It doesn't seem to flow. Is this true for you, as well?I wonder if artists sometimes appreciate having the tactile sensatio...
