Consider preparing paper, board or canvas with tinted watercolor ground. A neutral or tinted-base color is a terrific way to set the mood and atmosphere of your artwork!
Tinting also allows you the option of matching your painting foundation to any object you wish to paint, creating an invisible surface! Try tinting your watercolor ground with Aureolin and give a golden glow to your watercolor paper when painting sunny landscapes.
It used to be that watercolor painters had few options beyond white paper or a few colored boards. Now you can turn almost any surface into a toned or black ground for watercolor painting, as well as collage, pastels, pencils and mixed media work.
Titanium White, as well as turning any surface into Watercolor Paper, allows you to rescue areas within a painting done on Watercolor paper! How many times do you get a “Do Over”?
It’s so easy to apply Ground over an area within a painting that needs rescuing—or for working on different compositional areas. You can also lift and scrub without damaging the painting surface.
ABOUT DANIEL SMITH
In 1976, scraping enough money together to purchase on old 3-roll mill, Dan began manufacturing paints with the lightfastness and working characteristics artists desired. Over the years, as Dan's partnership with artists grew, so grew the business. Daniel Smith have consistently been innovators, offering ever-expanding possibilities, from the Quinacridone and Luminescent colors they first brought to artists, to their versatile Watercolor Ground. Daniel Smith’s commitment to partnering with artists continues, as does their desire to never stop thinking like one. Every tube of DANIEL SMITH paint starts with the artist in mind.
