Dan Marshall Plein Air Watercolor Workshop

Improve​ ​Your​ ​Tattooing​ ​Through​ ​Watercolor


How​ ​will​ ​it​ ​translate​ ​to​ ​your​ ​tattooing? Plein​ ​Air​ ​Watercolor​ ​requires​ ​you​ ​to​ ​narrow​ ​your​ ​focus​ ​and​ ​simplify​ ​shapes​ ​which​ ​is​ ​a​ ​great habit​ ​to​ ​get​ ​into​ ​when​ ​designing​ ​tattoos.​ ​This​ ​approach​ ​will​ ​allow​ ​you​ ​to​ ​make​ ​design​ ​decisions without​ ​being​ ​bogged​ ​down​ ​in​ ​detail​ ​too​ ​early​ ​in​ ​the​ ​process.​ ​After​ ​all,​ ​adding​ ​detail​ ​will​ ​never​ ​fix a​ ​poor​ ​design.​ ​In​ ​fact,​ ​it​ ​only​ ​draws​ ​more​ ​attention​ ​to​ ​the​ ​fact​ ​that​ ​the​ ​design​ ​was​ ​not​ ​well thought​ ​out.
In​ ​addition,​ ​watercolor​ ​painting​ ​will​ ​help​ ​develop​ ​your​ ​eye​ ​to​ ​recognize​ ​subtle​ ​shifts​ ​in​ ​value​ ​and temperature​ ​allowing​ ​you​ ​to​ ​create​ ​more​ ​depth​ ​realism​ ​in​ ​your​ ​tattoos.
Watercolor​ ​also​ ​​ ​requires​ ​us​ ​to​ ​give​ ​up​ ​some​ ​control​ ​over​ ​our​ ​process.​ ​Tattooing​ ​is​ ​a​ ​very precise​ ​and​ ​controlled​ ​medium​ ​which​ ​can​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​over​ ​rendering.​ ​This​ ​often​ ​results​ ​in​ ​“stiff”, uninteresting​ ​work.​ ​By​ ​learning​ ​to​ ​use​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​edges​ ​and​ ​textures,​ ​we​ ​can​ ​give​ ​more immediacy​ ​and​ ​visual​ ​interest​ ​to​ ​our​ ​tattoos.
Finally,​ ​plein​ ​air​ ​watercolor​ ​painting​ ​is​ ​fun​ ​when​ ​you​ ​have​ ​a​ ​plan​ ​and​ ​purpose.​ ​Dan​ ​Marshall’s process​ ​is​ ​easy​ ​to​ ​understand​ ​and,​ ​with​ ​a​ ​little​ ​practice,​ ​easy​ ​to​ ​implement.​ ​Start​ ​part​ ​one​ ​by clicking​ ​the​ ​link​ ​below.
