Experimenting With Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground

I’ve always wanted to try painting with watercolor on canvas. I tried to research on how to do this, and apparently, you just need to first apply some watercolor ground on the surface.

And so, here’s a video where I have tried using watercolor ground on wood, paper and canvas…

Prior to this, I have tried the Schmincke watercolor ground, the transparent one. I didn’t really like it so much on the wood surface where I have tried it on. But maybe I will try it again another time on canvas.

So far, though, I was quite satisfied with the outcome of my watercolor painting on the canvas where I have used Daniel Smith’s watercolor ground (Titanium white). The only thing I’m not so crazy about is that the watercolor paint looks slightly more opaque than usual due to the titanium white watercolor ground in the background. It looks less luminous than when applied directly on paper.

I do hope you enjoyed this video. If you did, please do give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel if you like this sort of stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚
