Craftsy: Getting Started with Watercolor

craftsy-watercolor

Our sponsor this week is Craftsy which provides downloadable eGuides and tutorials for aspiring artists. The resources they provide allow aspiring artists quickly pick up the basics. This week they’re offering a free downloadable eGuide on the basics of watercolor, apparently it was popular last time we offered it so they’ve brought it back.

The eGuide provides an introduction to things like paper types, color value, temperature, and intensity, as well as the proper technique for swatching new paints.  If you didn’t go to art school, this is an easy way to pick up some fundamentals. The best part is that it costs zero dollars.

If you want, you can download the Beginner’s Guide to Watercolor.

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
