Spike Ress Watercolor Video
Spike Ress has posted a video of his process as he paints a watercolor - what fun to see it all come together. Sometimes watercolor can go fast (if you know what you're doing).
He paints in both watercolor and oils. "In recent years I have returned to painting in oil on location. However, I continue to work
in both media. I’ve used watercolor most of my life because it’s a friendly medium for the traveling
artist. It’s lightweight, fast drying, and lends itself to capturing a direct impression. I now find that
working in both watercolor and oil serves to heighten my skills in both media."
