Tint your Watercolor Ground!
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 Watercolro 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.
