Eleanor Lowden Pidgeon uses stiff acrylic brushes to scrub in bright watercolor pigments, then adjusts and mutes her hues with layers of additional color.
She refers to a black and white photo of a mountain road, to free her imagination to create her own exciting color scheme. In addition, Eleanor demonstrates how to "wax" your watercolor, eliminating the need for glass. Her layering of colors, use of materials and unique paint application bring a richness to her work that most watercolorists can only dream of.
Hi I have always loved your work and have just finished watching your new DVD. Your technique for applying the paint to paper produces such beautiful vibrant results it is awe-inspiring. I can hardly wait until Sunday when I am going to try it out. The idea of finishing your painting by waxing instead of framing under glass is truly a life saver. You have a very gentle and encouraging way of teaching. This DVD – I just love it. Janet S.
"Hello, I bought your DVD this weekend and truly enjoyed learning from you. I have been a watercolorist for over 25 years. I was speaking this morning with an art masters student at Uquam and she was very excited about using the wax medium (as demonstrated in your video) on a watercolour. (It is amazing how) far reaching your market is . Manon
