Evaluating Watercolors: A Guide for Beginner to intermediate Artists : Part 1

Watercolor painting is a beautiful and relaxing art form that can produce stunning results. However, it can also be challenging to master, especially for beginners who may not know how to evaluate their own work. In this article, we will introduce some basic criteria that can help you assess your watercolor paintings and improve your skills. These criteria are: 
  • Composition
  • Color
  • Perspective
  • Texture
  • Transparency
  • Connectedness
  • Clarity

Composition

Composition is the arrangement of elements in your painting, such as shapes, lines, values, and focal points. A good composition should create a sense of balance, harmony, and movement in your painting. It should also guide the viewer’s eye to the most important parts of your painting and create a clear message or mood.
Some tips for creating a good composition are: 

  • Use the rule of thirds to divide your paper into nine equal sections and place your focal points along the intersections or lines.

  • Use contrast to create interest and variety in your painting. Contrast can be achieved by using different values, colors, shapes, or sizes.

  • Use repetition to create unity and rhythm in your painting. Repetition can be achieved by using similar elements, such as colors, shapes, or patterns.

  • Use negative space to create breathing room and emphasize your positive shapes. Negative space is the area around or between your subjects that is left unpainted or lightly painted.

How your painting can improve with Gestalt Principles

Connectedness is one of the Gestalt principles of perceptual organization. The human mind perceives elements as a group rather than individual units. If you apply this principle to your paintings, the quality will improve dramatically.


In a watercolour painting, you can apply the principle by using flow in colours and merging shape with other objects. It can help you create a sense of fluidity, spontaneity, and harmony in your painting. Connectedness can also help you create a sense of unity and cohesiveness in your painting..

Meeting up with The Milind Mulick

Milind did a workshop on the 15th and 16th of July at the bombay Art Society. I joined this workshop primarily to get some guidance from mIlind on certain aspects of watercolour. Milind is such an amazingly humble person to talk to and what a wonderful sense of humor.



We discussed his work, Joseph, Alvarro, Chien Chung Wei, among other things. Always good to analyse the maters as it really iproves your perspective. Thanks, Milind Mulick, for the wonderful guidance, & your wonderful sense of humour.
