Knowing your colours

I haven't been painting much, but what I have been doing is getting my surfaces and backgrounds done, so that when I am 'ready', I'll be able to have a whole host of stuff to paint :)

I have also 'discovered' Bob Davies! He is such a brilliant painter, and teacher, and he explains things so clearly, I am sure he could teach anyone to paint.

I've included here a video of his explanation on something very basic: colours.

As you watch the video, a pop-up will appear, to take you to his site, where, if you like, you could get a FREE download of his book on watercolour painting. He also has a free download of his book on Acryllic painting. I have downloaded them both, and am now reading them. For someone who is new to painting, they offer a wealth of information, and lots for me to digest. Do visit his site, and see what he has to offer.

In the meantime, enjoy his video:

AND, since I've always been in love with watercolour painting, I enjoyed this:

A great way to start experimenting with watercolour painting, I think, would be with this painting, im monochrome!
