A watercolour that has been made with a brush is not only easy to paint, but also creates an interesting contrast to the natural world.
Read moreA study published in the journal Nature Communications has revealed how paintbrush paintings can be a creative solution for creating watercolours and landscape paintings.
Researchers from the University of Southampton found that using a brush to paint a landscape or watercolour can create a unique sense of depth.
They found that by using the brush to create a “sunken landscape” in the example below, the artist could “create an aesthetic sense of a landscape in the water” without resorting to a more traditional paintbrush technique.
They said that this was because the watercolour “paints a more natural sense of the landscape” and “allows the painter to explore the landscape in a more ‘natural’ way”.
The team of researchers found that the “sinking” effect of a brush painting was due to the fact that it was able to paint the landscape “in a more relaxed and controlled way” and that “the surface of the canvas was more flexible and the brush could be used more effectively than if the canvas were painted with a traditional brush”.
The researchers also found that watercolour paintings created by using a paint brush were “much easier to learn, and were more likely to be successful”.
The study said that using “an inexpensive brush with a very thin paintbrush tip” to create landscape paintings “was effective, but not very accurate, and was also difficult to paint with.
This makes the watercolour paintbrush art an alternative to traditional paintbrushes”.
The results showed that the results of the study “indicated that the use of a paintbrushing can be an effective method for creating landscape paintings”.
“The watercolour paints a more naturally relaxed, relaxed, and natural landscape,” the researchers added.
The researchers said that they were “pleased that we have succeeded in showing that the painting technique we used was able create a similar effect to the traditional painting technique with a cheap, easy to use paintbrush, and without the use [of] traditional techniques.”
“The technique can be used in landscapes, landscapes, natural landscapes, or even a watercolour painting of any kind, with the use only of a cheap paintbrush.”
