Lineless

Filed under: Getting Started — Elizabeth @ 8:39 pm

Watercolorists can get it so they are creating a photographic image, well whatever you want to do it is great and it seems it changes, what I want to mention here is how line-less watercolor lends itself to being.

A living fluid motion from one thing to another.

No lines, no start or end, no limits, everything is a part of everything else, the change is fluid and the being just moves from one thing to another.

Watercolor seems to have a life on the page and that life is beyond your limitations of it. You can work in wet and let go of control, so much need to control…and become free. Then you realize sometimes the color and water and you (moving the drawing board around maybe to direct the flow with gravity and movement) all had good input. It was not just a top down management, hierarchical style, you found getting input from the many was more fruitful. And the paint landed where it did and you may fret and you may be glad and you may rework, it is all there.
