    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.

    Bonjour Maria.
    Ta peinture est très Belle.
    Excuse moi, je n'écris pas l'anglais.
    a tu fais une école ou bien est ce de naissance que tu a ce don du ciel ?
    bon Noël à toi.🎅

    • Carlos Marteau

      @Maria Raczynska Bonsoir Maria.
      Effectivement, il faut beaucoup travailler mais il faut quand même une capacité de naissance, c'est comme les mathématiques, on l'a où on l'a pas..
      Votre maman vit en France ? vous même parlez vous français ?
      moi je parle un peu anglais mais pas assez pour un texte correct 😕
      Avez vous un site internet ? j'aimerais vous envoyer quelques unes de mes réalisations .
      Bonne soirée , Carlos.

    • Maria Raczynska
      Maria Raczynska  8 months ago

      Coucou Carlos, ça va, tu n'as pas besoin d'un talent pour apprendre l'aquarelle Ma mère est peintre à l'huile (elle vit en France), elle a été enseignée par un artiste quand elle était jeune. Jusqu'à aujourd'hui, elle me rappelle que le talent n'est que de 20%, 80% est un travail difficile. C'est là que vos 80% viennent .. travaillez simplement et vous y arriverez. Bonne année!🤗⛄️🎉❄️

      @Maria Raczynska Bonjour Maria.
      Alors félicitations, moi aussi j'essaie de faire de l'aquarelle mais ça n'est pas facile car je ne suis pas doué de naissance, je fais surtout des paysages de campagne de France, mais ça n'est pas facile.
      Bonne année 2019 à toi aussi 👑 et ton enfant.
      à bientôt.

    • Maria Raczynska

      Merci beaucoup Carlos🤗☃️❄️Je suis un artiste autodidacte et j'ai commencé à peindre en 2012/2013. Joyeux Noël à toi et bonne année☺️🌸☃️

    Puoi dirmi questi washi tape nn rovinano i fogli come lo schotch trasparente?!

    • Flavia Centofanti
      Flavia Centofanti 9 months ago +1

      Maria Raczynska spesso io uso la carta Arches 300 gr ruvida
      Grazie per le dritte

    • Maria Raczynska
      Maria Raczynska  9 months ago

      Ciao, il nastro washi è molto delicato e non rovina la carta da acquerello, ma dipende anche da quale carta da acquerello stai usando, alcuni non possono maneggiare alcun nastro .. washi è il migliore per me quindi tutti devono testarsi da soli , Spero che questo abbia un senso🎄❄️☃️☺️

  • Majoma Jodi Mahaffey Artist

    I have been watching your videos for a while now and I have been wondering, how are you keeping your paper flat? The washi tape appears to only be used to create the border? You say you are using 12x14 sheets, are these in a block form? I am really curious.

    • Maria Raczynska
      Maria Raczynska  9 months ago

      Your welcome :)

      @Maria Raczynska, thank you! I guess being glass it hard to tell on camera.

    • Maria Raczynska
      Maria Raczynska  9 months ago +1

      Hi, I lay my paper on a glass top table and I do extend washi over the paper so the tape is sticking to the glass as well. I buy my watercolor papers in sheets 22X30, then cut them into different sizes like this one 12X14.

    Lovely depth in the pine cones and a soft, creative interpretation of the photograph. (This is the first time I've turned off the music, but no matter.) Your pine cone technique is different from my instructor's; she taught us to use one stroke and let the paint run from dark to light. Yours is more beautiful and doesn't look any harder. I think there's just time to try this before Christmas.

    So gorgeous, Maria! I find drawing or painting pinecones very challenging and you are showing me a different way of looking at the process.
