Watercolor Painting for Seniors and Beginners
Watercolor painting is fun and easy hobby for seniors looking to express their artistic abilities without needing to go through an excessive amount of training. With that being said, painting with watercolor can be difficult at times as the paint can be unpredictable, making it hard to keep colors contained and looking exactly as you had planned once they have dried. Without some basic training and practice, it can be easy to lose control of your painting. Watercolor painting does offer several advantages over other types of painting, including very fast drying time, a simple and easy cleanup process, and best of all, it’s very affordable! And with watercolor, you can achieve a level of transparency and glow that you can’t get with other paint mediums. It lets the light shine through your paintings.
