    I've been getting a lot of similar questions so I have created a Q/A on my website - all about watercolor PAPERS, pigments, taping down etc 😃 and go to a BLOG
    The white pigment I use is an opaque watercolor - GOUACHE (Holbein)
    I use it instead of my regular watercolor whites which are too transparent for my style of painting.

    👋 this was wonderful may I ask, if you prefer wash tape over masking, why? And purpose of neutral tint, to intensify or darken? I love your work, beautiful always ❤❤❤👏👏👏👍😀

      @Maria Raczynska thanks Maria. Have neutral tint and better idea how to use. Lol on washi tape but I think so too. Loved the picture of the baby. Meant to congratulate you long ago. Boy or girl, beautiful either or 😁,Thanks for the help. Wish more artists were as helpful. Will credit you strongly when posting and do understand guidelines. Some artists are a little harsh on that but you laid it out very nicely. Again thank you 👋🌹❤😁

      Maria Raczynska  5 months ago +1

      Thank you Terri🌸☺️Neutral tint is just another gray color and I like the shade of it. I prefer washi tape because it's the most gentle and it looks pretty🦋

      Thank you so much Harshal🤗🌹it was a fun project and my daughter was sleeping there the entire time so I wasn't able to focus much on detail... the way you see me there, that's how far my head had to be from the painting so Allie would be leaning on my chest lol 😂

    The different colours fit together really well, and it’s cool how you painted the reflection of the boat in the water. This video is so relaxing (and the music choice is perfect, too!). I’m so glad it’s summer! ☀️

    As always, your work is just breathtakingly beautiful. It has been a moment since I have been able to try some watercolors of yours out. I miss watercoloring. I used paint ur pictures as my little one slept as urs is doing so wonderfully in the thumb nail. He just turned two this 20th, so he only takes one nap, and is always on the move. ☺️ during his nap or sleep time I am doing my art resin. So I need to take a moment to paint all the saved vids of urs to practice. I am always so grateful with you how share ur colors, as u color and ur paint brush. It allows me to grab all my things, prep my pallet, and be stress free as I copy along. You give me works of art each time. I don’t know how to paint, or anything. I wanted to learn to paint with watercolor, and this was such a huge wave of relief through my autism dealing with my many anxieties and over stimulation of my uncontrolled environments in a daily basis. It was such a huge therapeutic relief to know that your thoroughness allowed me the best start to learning to watercolor and art. Which led me to what is my other passion, art resin. That also led me to be brave to start my own TVclip channel. I haven’t been using this channel because of that very much, and I am trying to come on here to have all my TVclipr saved things switched over to my other channel to save them there. I have many of urs. ☺️ is it okay if I ever show me doing how I duplicate your paintings in my channel? Or is that illegal? I know you specifically as to not have things posted unless it says “copy by you...” I always just copy and paste what you type when I have shared it on my super private personal FB page. But if I ever was able to show how I copy along as I water color from a video from you, I would record literally me painting along with your video too. I don’t make any money from my channel, I am not an affiliate either. It is a very small channel. I mostly do my art resin and AI on there, I go live daily except on Tuesday’s where I do pre-recordings. But I like making cards, and envelopes from scratch and watercoloring those, as well as watercolor as a whole. I cannot draw, so I literally just copy along with my brush. My channel is meant to be anything I feel like doing or trying that is art related, with no restraints as to the kind of artwork I will post. I didn’t want to be confined. I just started it like a month or two ago. I’m super new.
    Ms. Maria, it is totally fine if it is not okay for me to do that on my channel too. I just thought it would be fun to show my viewers for my pre-recorded days. You are an amazing artist and I do not want to ever minimize that. So if it is not okay, I’m more than understanding. I appreciate you taking the time to read this very long post. 🙏🏻🥰 it’s nice to chat with you again. 💋
    Oh! If u would like to know what channel I am referring to here is a link, so u understand what I am talking about. One of my girlfriends who helped me sent me this link so I can now share with people. I just copy and paste it. Isn’t that lovely? 😀 technology is amazing. Here it is if you would like to take a look. I don’t know how to send you a private message on here so I hope it is not rude of me to ask you this way.
