Transparent Watercolor offers artists the most sublime medium for creating images that emerge from your creative observations and the visualizations.
It is the most wonderful medium for artists painting in the seclusion of their home studio... exploring places near where they live... traveling long distances on vacation... or exploring far off lands on the other side of the world.
For hundreds of years Watercolor has been the most wonderful of mediums for artists to travel and explore the world... especially throughout the 1800's.
Eugene Delacroix ( 1798-1863 ) was one of the greatest of all French "Orientalist" painters of the 1800's. He painted many grand masterpieces in oils. But when he traveled... he used Watercolor and a Sketchbook. And it was in his numerous Travel Journals filled with hundreds of his sketches & watercolor studies that his amazing genius can be easily seen & studied.
