The Nuance of Painting White

The Nuance of Painting White

Today’s blog features Leena from @doodle_genes. He beautiful art work features still lifes and portirats showing snapshots of daily life. You can find her last blog here.

“As a beginner, painting white surfaces was the most difficult part of a painting. With an amateur knowledge about colours and balance, I would blandly leave the areas white. Little did I know The whites actually had colours ( highly diluted colours)


As you grow in watercolors your sense of observation grows. You realize whites are actually ultramarine, violet, and ochre depending on the surroundings of the white subject. Sometimes a white may reflect more than one colour. Along with the surrounding another thing that defines which is the subject and its geometry. A rounded surface will reflect light on the edges while a flat object may require a simple gradient wash.


You see whites are a very interesting subject to be painted. The more you observe the more you learn.”
