In this video, continuing from the last Series 3, I will show you how to paint two pictures with different material on the same topic and at a same time. Many students are asking what is the difference between watercolor and acrylic painting. Therefore, since the last time, I will paint Bougainvellia in watercolor and acrylic on the same paper simultaneously. Watercolor and Acrylic have similar and different characteristics.
1)Similar characteristics: Water base and dry quickly.
2)Different characteristics: Watercolor can be painted only on the
paper. In case of acrylic, we can paint not just on the paper, but on
the wood fabric plastic, even metal. One more different thing is
that watercolor can be dissolved the paint with water after dried,
but acrylic can not be dissolved with water after dried.
One more tip: In Watercolor Painting the colors to be painted from bright area to dark area. Contrary, In Acrylic Painting, the colors to be painted from dark are to bright area.
I would like explain why I use Gesso on Acrylic section. Gesso is the same as a primer. It creates a surface that is absorbent and has a texture that allows paint to grab onto the surface. Watercolor can not make the texture on the paper. In Acrylic painting I usually do knife work. To do use knife, the texture is needed, so apply the Gesso.
I have posted a series of comparing watercolor vs acrylic painting tutorial video on Saturday.
