Jane.. thanks for posting this lovely painting! I think calling this forum "watermedia" is a good idea, and one I too have tossed around for awhile now. It will be discussed Carol

Nice corn and onion Jane.
As far as changing the name of this forum, I like Watermedia, but I don't think acrylic paintings or questions, etc. should be posted here. For one, we have an acrylic forum. For another, acrylics have many more uses than watercolors and I think the topic discussions would become burdensome and confusing to the users. For instance, having to always remember to tell everyone the painting you just posted was acrylic along with the questions, thoughts, size, etc. Just my humble opinion.

Watermedia is a good idea but as Sister Mary said, maybe keep the acrylic forum and post under the watermedia heading when you are using the watercolour technique of glazes. etc? and definitely listing what media you used when posting.

Well my 2 cents worth is if is says watercolour on the paint container its watercolour, and if it says acrylic then its acrylic, never mind which method is used to paint the picture, to mix the two in one forum would be to confusing and perhaps even annoying, if we want to look at acrylic we can go to the acrylic forum. There's even water mixable oils now, so where do you draw the line.

Nice picture Jane, well done.

Post Corn - watercolor technique w/acrylics

Darrell brings up an interesting question. And problematic for me. Occasionally I like to paint with acrylics rather than watercolors. I feel my watercolor technique acrylics (on paper, to be framed under glass) have much more in common with the watercolor forum than the acrylic one. I actually wonder if this forum would not be more useful being called "Watermedia". Watercolor, these days, is often multi-media; incorporating gouache and/or acrylics, too. The approaches to painting with all 3 mediums, are more similar than different; all water-based. Anyway, I had to choose...the acrylic forum, or the watercolor forum for this. My SPLASH 5 book (Watercolor!) includes 100% acrylic paintings done with watercolor techniques. As I said in Darrell's post... North Light has spoken...hehe. So here I am. ---Jane

btw... much sky is lost in the scan, and the end of the corn, too

I completely agree with Sister Mary.

And Taghera asked a really good question: What about water-miscible oils? Where do you draw the line? (I can imagine: the oil painters would be forced to prove they used turpentine, or be banished to the watermedia forum!) And what about water-soluble pastels? Can't go to the pastel forum! Nope! You used water, and there's only ONE PLACE for that! Move along now!

Bad idea to combine the watercolor and acrylics forums simply because a (very) few people use acrylics like they're watercolors; what possible benefit could there be? If you all just like the sound of the word "watermedia" better than "watercolor" -- then fine, change the name, but please don't try to take away the acrylics forum!
