Luminous Watercolour Glazing

I have just had another article published in Artist's Back to Basics on the subject of 'Watercolour Glazing for Luminosity'. This is a quarterly magazine and I write an article for each issue.
I describe how you can achieve glowing and intense colours yet still retain a translucency with the use of overglazing.
This is a method of painting diluted transparent layers of watercolour on top of a dry wash.
The article has examples of colour and explanations of how to apply the colour to achieve the effect you want. The order you apply the colours is also important.
Happy painting - and let your colours sing!
