I was honoured to be asked to create a watercolour for the TWSA's 2016 mini painting auction and just had to create one with a transparent watercolour theme. Now we all know that when painting in transparent watercolour preserving your whites is the key. Little white Paint-Ted has been trying so hard to preserve his whites but when you are a young bear with deliciously juicy rich tubes of watercolour to experiment with this is such a hard thing to do. Pigment-Ted, on the other hand is learning, first hand, about the art of glazing. I think someone maybe should have told him that this layering of colour is supposed to happen on the paper though and not on him though, don't you?
