The design of a painting identifies an artist more than a signature. Develop a recognizable and unique style of painting by learning the building blocks of design, defining your strengths and strengthening your weaknesses. It all begins with simple shapes and shades of gray. The joy of playing with color is the reward for building a strong design that reflects who you are and your passion for painting, whether abstract of representational. The lessons learned may be applied to all media, not just watercolor.
