NO WATER, NO LIFE, NO BLUE, NO GREEN –AQUARELLE
Watercolour paintings are considered a unique way to creatively represent landscape, illusions, expressions, and bright feelings using water-soluble pigments. This medium of art is still very popular nowadays.
There are many preconceptions about watercolour; a paradoxical medium, seen by some as the perfect entry into painting but by many as technically challenging and difficult to master.In the 19th century Turner and Constable introduced watercolour into fine art; however, the French Academy, copied throughout Europe, created a hierarchy of subjects suitable for the serious artist; history and myth being at the top, followed by ‘genre’ scenes, then landscape and still life. The only material they proposed for historical painting was oil colour; watercolour was considered suitable for sketches and associated with architectural painting and landscape.
Water colour can have a particular, luminous quality achieved by applying transparent paint to white paper. Once applied, water colours are hard to move and artists respond in different ways to this challenge. I personally love watercolours and there are my attempts to this technique.
Consider the time that goes into crafting a beautiful painting on canvas. Then consider doing it all over again, this time with an electric rotary on the elastic and unpredictable surface that is the human body. No mistakes allowed.
Watercolour tattoos were trendy back in ‘12, with pioneers like Ondrash, Klaim and Wachob. Their body art experiments inspired others to explore, giving way to modern masters in this fresh and unique style.
Some of the most inventive and creative tattoos being done these days are inspired by watercolour paintings. Watercolour tattoos are no different in their execution than any other tattoo but they are completely different in their design. Watercolour tattoos have an artistry to them that is unmatched and will certainly turn your body into a living walking work of art. As in the watercolour paintings, we see more of shades, splatters and blurs rather than defined shapes and outlines, the same kind of effect becomes visible in watercolour tattoos. The image looks free formed instead of being outlined with defines lines in black ink and the shading in between is lighter in colour as compared to the regular tattoos. So if you are looking for something new for a first time tattoo or a unique option from the other tattoos which you already have, then watercolour tattoo would be an ideal option for you. That’s my favourite selection. Enjoy!!!
