Watercolour - Maimeri Blu

Superior watercolours
The merit of watercolour lies in the transparency of its tints and the freshness of washes and drippings of colour. Any correction is hard, if not impossible. The tones get lighter with the addition of water (not of white, which makes than chalky and  opaque). It is the whiteness of the paper that illuminates this type of painting. The light is behind the colour. Maimeri Blu features an absolute purity of pigments that, together with gum arabic, comprise the totality of the mixture. No blending powder, no additives: pure colours, pigments and nothing else. Nothing harmonizes or synchronizes the gear change between the various colours. It is up to the artist’s skill to orchestrate and handle different characteristics, particularities and traits.

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
