Did Rockwell paint in watercolor?
Yes, he used watercolors for sketches at all levels (e.g. first a pencil sketch then colored with watercolor, watercolor + acrylics). His watercolors on paper or board are also sold in auctions, as well as his original, hand signed drawings and of course the oil paintings.

I have one, unframed, 28 x 22 cm. "Flower seller, Paris". I paid £8 for it early 2007.
Watercolor painting is very easy if you get the correct amount of water on your paper or in your brush. You would need to read a book or take a few lessons. It's like riding a… bike. You don't know how unless you have someone show you and help you and you try. Just remember one thing. Light should be light and dark should be dark. That's what make the best paintings.
Experiment! Try mixed media- sharpies, pen, charcoal, etc. over/together with watercolor! Also, I find watercolor pencils are very useful in the creation of watercolors. Have …fun! :D
He was a impressionist who painted with oil-paints on canvas. None of his most famous paintings are in water color.
To darken or make "shades" of your watercolors simply add a small amount of black watercolor to it. You can also darken a hue by adding a darker "staining" hue of the same fam…ily to it. For example, add a dark red (i.e. alizarin crimson or thalo red) to a lighter red (i.e. cadmium scarlet or cadmium red). Because alizarin crimson (or thalo red) is a staining hue, only add a tiny amount of it to your light red hue. ==== Color Qualities - Exercise 10: Value Comparisons === This exercise will give you a range of tints and shades for each of your watercolors. Separate your watercolors according to their hue: yellows, greens, blues, violets, reds, oranges, browns, etc., into separate groups. With a pencil, draw a row of squares (each an inch or so in size) horizontally across the middle of a sheet of paper. Then paint one square for each of your yellows (then greens, etc.) just as it comes from the tube with just enough water mixed in to paint a fluid brush stroke. Do the same across additional sheets of watercolor paper until you have made enough squares for all of your watercolor paints. Next, above the middle row of painted squares, paint a second row of the matching color lightened by the addition of water giving you a series of tints. Above this, add another row in which the colors are still further diluted (as uniformly as possible), creating even lighter tints. Still above this add, if you wish, another row or two, with your paints so greatly diluted as to result in very pale tints of all of your colors. Now, follow the same general procedure to create darkened shades of each color for several rows below the middle row of watercolors by adding more and more black to each new row. NOTE: Try to add your water (or black) to your paint in exactly the right quantity for each square so that your gradation will be as uniform as possible. Analysis -- You will now begin to see what a variety of colors is obtainable through even this simple mixture of water or black to each of your watercolors from the tube. Some interesting comparisons will also be evident. If you study your two series showing your watercolors and tints, and watercolors and shades, you will observe, among other things, that your watercolors vary greatly in tone, some being quite light and others quite dark. For example, yellow in its normal form is very light in tone -- really a tint in relation to most watercolors. Therefore, as you add the water to yellow to create a series of yellowish tints, these will vary only slightly in value one from another. On the contrary, in the case of a watercolor which is normally dark, deep blue or violet, for instance -- as you add the water to create tints, you will discover a vary noticeable difference from area to area. Whereas a light tint of yellow will look quite similar in value to the yellow watercolor from the tube. A light tint of deep blue or violet will look very different than blue or violet watercolor straight from the tube. Now study your areas of blackened shades. Here the yellow will change very rapidly in tones as the black is added to make it darker. The chances are that a dark shade of yellow will have an appearance which, if seen as an isolated spot, you would scarcely recognize as being yellow, yet, strictly speaking, it is. In the case of your deep blue or violet, there will be far less difference in your shade squares. These comparisons will help you to represent a certain tint or shade. Keep and use this exercise as a reference to know just what watercolor will give you the desired color for your painting through the addition of water or black only. ========
They are student grade watercolor, but not cheap like the crayola or dollar store watercolor. Great for beginners, and a good value for the price.
Watercolor paintings are usually painted on any kind of paper that has a bit of texture so that it will hold the color in place and that is thick enough not to wrinkle too muc…h when moist. You can buy watercolor paper at art stores and sometimes even walmart or office supply stores. Watercolor paper comes in different weights (thickness) and also three types which are; hot press (smooth), cold press (less smooth), and rough.
water and pastel Answer 2 Not pastel, please! Pastels are crayons.
Well, technically, you could, but I don't know if it would stay on for a long time. It might peel off very quickly.
You can tell a watercolour painting by just looking at it! Watercolours tend to be lighter because of the water required. Watercolour paintings are light. Notice it!
Watercolour paintings are painted on watercolour paper which is somewhat thicker than regular paper in that it doesn't wrinkle over time.
watercolour paintings fade because the water in them never actually dries completely or the material/ paper may get hot and produce condensation causing the watercolours to ev…apourate, thus leaving you with a faded painting
It depends what kind of brand watercolors you have. If they are good then it would probably stay on. Just dont wash it. > <
Yes, Card stock make a good ground for watercolour, gouache, acrylic, regular and watercolour pencils, and pen & ink.
Watercolor painting is an art work>
