            Roy Fuller's Tropical Watercolor Paintings

   Watercolor Artists Roy Fuller    "Roy Fuller is an internationally known Watercolor Artist and has been painting for more than 25 years and is know internationally as a watercolor artist and watercolor workshop instructor.  He is the number one internet artists for Florida Watercolor Paintings For Sale.  He painted in oils doing the Bob Ross technique for several years and then switched to watercolor painting about 20 years ago because of the clean up associated with oil painting. The price of oil paints and canvas is also much more expensive than watercolor paints and watercolor paper. Roy has been studying international watercolor artist Tony Couch now for many years.

    Being a high tech individual Roy is always looking for more technical ways to make his paintings better. Now he focuses on only a few of the rules or tools of painting and design. He relies on his experience of these design theories, but does not dwell on them to much during the painting process. Roy is also an avid tennis player and finds he plays his best tennis when he simply keeps his eye on the ball and forgets all his training. The same is true of writing songs. When you paint a painting in less than 15 minutes you have to stay focused. You don't have time to think about what to do, or changes to make, you just do it from instinct. The same as playing your best tennis. It's called being in the zone. You have to free your mind of all the training and rigid formalities and just paint what you feel. Let your intuitions guide your brush and your subconscious will always be aware of the rules and tools of painting that you have learned. You nee to think Abstract Shapes when you are designing your paintings. Design the shapes in your painting as if you are doing as abstract painting and then simplify your painting to symbols.

    Roy's style of watercolor painting takes less than ONE hour and many watercolor painting projects can be completed in less than 15 minutes. His techniques allow you to paint quickly.  He focuses his workshops on painting design and teaches his students to always do a value sketch first to make sure they have a solid design and then to apply the watercolor paint quickly with as few brush strokes as possible.  This gives you a fresh and glowing painting in less than ONE hour." 

    Most people don't have hours, days or even weeks to complete a watercolor painting.  Roy Fuller can teach you how to paint beautiful spontaneous watercolors in less than 30 minutes! Many of his paintings are completed in less than 15 minutes. The quicker you can complete a watercolor painting the more fluid and spontaneous it will look. The secret is doing all your planning and design before you start painting and use big brushes and the minimum number of brush strokes. It's really a very simple process but most watercolor artists make it too complicated. Keep It Simple!

 

                                                          Watercolor Painting Tips:

   Actually Roy prefer doing his paintings in less than 30 minutes. He completely wets both sides of the watercolor paper after sketching his design on the paper. As the watercolor paper is drying in the next 12 to 15 minutes he applies the sky, the distant foliage, the foreground and by this time the paper is usually almost dry. Now before the watercolor paper is completely dry he scratches in some trees, buildings and other objects. By now the paper will be dry and it's time to add details with a liner brush. This is also a good time to add some hard edges to the outside of your symbols. You need to collect your own symbols for objects and use them in all your paintings. Never paint exactly what you see or how something in real life would look. You have to use your symbol collection for your trees, buildings, rocks, boats, etc. Simplify everything in your paintings. Like Ed Whitney and Tony Couch suggests, use a baby, mamma and a papa size symbols in your paintings. That's really all you need. Don't clutter up your paintings with dozens of trees. All you really need is three unique trees with different size, height, width, value and texture. It's really that simple!


 

                                Watercolor Painting Design Techniques:

    1).  Use proper perspective in your drawings. Poor perspective will overpower great technique. Make sure objects in the foreground are larger than objects in the middle ground or back ground. Use lighter values in the background and darker in the foreground. This will give the illusion of distance. Make sure your buildings are larger in the foreground compared to background buildings.

   2).  Use one of the 4 major value patterns. Artists long before my time determined that the masters all used one of a few different value patterns on all their paintings. There are actually eight or nine different patterns but you can do hundred's of paintings with just one or two of them. Study the patterns and pick the one you like best and stick with it for a while. You will see a huge improvement in you overall paintings. This is one of the single most important things you can do to improve your paintings.

   3).   Use shapes and symbols instead of trying to reproduce what you see in nature. Develop your own set of symbols for rocks, trees, mountains, oceans, etc. This is how many artist find themselves or develop their own personal painting styles. Study the symbols other artists use but try to build your own set of symbols.

   4).  Use papa, mama and baby symbols and shapes. Don't add dozens of rocks, trees, buildings, shapes, etc to your paintings. You really only need a big one, a medium sized one and a small one to convey most landscape concepts. Adding to many of them makes the painting look overworked and makes it more difficult to add variety to the symbols and shapes.

   5).   Use variety in your shapes and symbols. Make one tall, one short. One wide and one narrow. One dark and one lighter. Be especially aware of variety when using alternation and repetition. The shapes must include a variety of size, shape, color, contrast, value, direction and dominance.

   6).   Don't put your center of interest in the middle. This is a very common problem with novice painters. Make sure your COI is not an equal distance to either side of the paper. Put it in the upper right, upper left, lower right or lower left side of the paper.

   7).  Try to incorporate the greatest contrast around your center of interest. For example surround your COI with your darkest value and use a white COI for maximum contrast and focus on your COI.

   8).   Use three different values in your paintings. Use light, mid-value and dark values in your paintings. This is not color, it's the darkness or lightness of your colors. I suggest a mid-value background (sky, water, foreground), with a large dark interesting shape about 1/3 to 1/4 the size of the mid value area, and a light (or white) shape overlapping the dark shape.

   9).   Use interlocking edges on your shapes and symbols when possible. First use an interesting shape and then interlock it with the shape it is overlapping. This can also be referred to as incident at the edges. You want your shape to intrude into other shapes with interesting edge incidents. This could be an antenna sticking up from a roof top of a house or a tree extending up from your dark shape into the sky. This is called edge interlocking and makes your shapes interesting.

   10).   Use oblique or diagonal shapes when possible as they signal action or movement in a painting. This is more interesting than a static object.

   If you employ the above design techniques and suggestions into your paintings you will have a much more interesting watercolor panting. These design techniques also apply to oil, pastel, acrylic and mixed media paintings as well.

                


 

                                                       Watercolor Painting Workshops

       Workshops are focused on the basics necessary to make a watercolor painting come together. Things like composition, doing a value sketch before you start painting, basic design elements and principles that make up a great painting. These are the things that will breath life into your watercolor paintings. Keeping your painting applications and techniques fresh.. His technique involves wetting the entire watercolor paper completely before applying any watercolor paints. Then applying watercolor paint quickly with the minimum number of brush strokes. The paper dries in 14 minutes so you have to work fast. Another 30 minutes to work on some details and the watercolor painting is finished.

      Florida Watercolor Artist Roy Fuller During A Watercolor Painting Workshop Lecture

                                           Roy Fuller Watercolors

    Roy Fuller became infatuated with the paintings of the talented Tony Couch's watercolor workshops, books and DVD's. He decided after several years of oil  painting that it was time to move on to a more spontaneous process. A painting process and technique that doesn't require weeks or months for the paintings to dry completely. Watercolors dry quickly and you can make corrections quickly. Watercolor is a medium that uses very inexpensive art supplies compared to other painting mediums. You can sit down for one hour and finish a nice watercolor painting. Very similar timeframe that it took Bob Ross to paint his beautiful oil paintings on television. Roy purchased all of Tony Couch's books and DVD and started experimenting with techniques used by Bob Ross in oil Painting combined with techniques used by Tony Couch's beautiful watercolor paintings.

    Roy has studied via their books, DVD's and workshops the techniques of watercolor artists including Tony Couch, Tom Lynch, Cathy Johnson, Judi Wagner, Edgar Whitney, Skip Lawrence, John Lovett, Sterling Edwards, Tony Van Hasselt, and many others. It has taken Roy many years to perfect his style of FAST PAINTING.  He completes his paintings in less than 30 minutes and often less than 15 minutes by simplifying his paintings and planning the painting before starting. He has learned to utilize the special qualities and characteristics of watercolors like spontaneous color mixing using wet into wet for most of the painting. Done with big brushes this keep your painting loose and fresh. It also takes the work out of watercolor painting and makes it FUN to paint again!

    Roy freely offers his wealth of watercolor painting information on his websites at no charge and available to everyone with an internet connection. His international watercolor workshops are the best way to bring all this information together and improve your watercolor paintings. Even if your style of watercolor painting depends on detailed paintings that take days to render, you will still benefit greatly from learning how to paint quick and loose under paintings that you will add washes or glazes to later.

     Roy Fuller lives in Southwest Florida and has several websites dedicated to free watercolor painting online information.  Free information is available to help you with watercolor design principles for Landscapes, Seascapes & Abstracts. Roy also has a free watercolor painting DVD available for download. 

    Roy Fuller has been painting for over 25 years and is pleased to offer this FREE Watercolor Painting Information to everyone. His free online workshops and free watercolor painting demonstrations and workshops DVD available for download and are focused on the basics necessary to make a watercolor painting come together. Things like composition, doing a value sketch before you start painting, basic design elements and principles that make up a great painting. These are things that will breath life into your watercolor paintings, keeping your painting applications and techniques fresh.

    Free Watercolor Painting Information, Techniques and Tips   

    Painting Technique - Always get the paper as wet as you can before you begin applying watercolor paints. Depending on your environment you may only have 7 minutes before the paper starts to dry.

       Painting Technique  - Don't dilute your paint to the point of liquid.  For painting the beach, the foreground trees and bushes you want your paint to be like toothpaste. This will give you a little more control over the wet in wet process also.

     Painting Technique  - Paint from wet to dry, from large shapes to small shapes, and from light values to dark values. All this is done while the painting is drying in the first 7 minutes and also as you apply additional watercolor washes or details.

 Painting Technique - Use larger brushes such as 3 inch, 2 inch and 1 1/2 inch flat brushes.                                                        

     Painting Technique - Don't try applying the paint uniformly as this is not always pleasing to the viewer.  Instead add some    variety in your brush strokes, the paint mixture, the size of shapes, the value of shapes, the number of shapes. 

 "Variety is the spice of everything nice" Roy Fuller 2001.

     Painting Technique  - Apply paint with your brush quickly.  Don't stay in one spot going back and forth, move around the paper in light, sweeping strokes and changing your direction continuously. It's the variety in your brush strokes you want to focus on.  Always use variety in you painting from the design to the completion. Always paint trees different heights, width, texture, values and colors. The same goes for rocks, mountains, people, clouds and everything else.

 "Plan Slow and Paint Fast" Roy Fuller 2005.

     Painting Technique  I always do best when I paint on a slight angle.  You can experiment slanting your board upward off a flat table by placing a book, etc. under the outside edge.  I usually paint with my backboard in the vertical position so my students can see better.

  Roy Fuller offers 1, 3 and 5 day watercolor painting workshops in the United States and Costa Rica.  The painting workshops are focused on design principles, composition, technique, and colors. Part of the watercolor workshop will be dedicated to your watercolor artist web site. We'll discuss some web site design principles and some techniques to optimize your website for top search engine rankings. Marketing your art work is just as important as creating it. Workshops will cover landscapes, seascapes, abstracts and new arts. You'll learn how to paint and design trees, rocks, clouds, rivers, lakes, reflections, shadows, snow and oceans.

  Everyone starts at the basics in these workshops. Learning special techniques to paint is only part of the whole picture of creating a masterpiece watercolor. You must learn compose your painting with proper design. You need to plan for your center of interest in your basic value sketch, before you ever put paint to the paper. A little planning goes a long way in the finished painting. We'll show you how to do a basic value sketch and transpose that into a well designed watercolor painting.

  Watercolor workshops are fun for all ages, young and old. Our workshops are geared toward the more serious watercolor artists. You'll be doing lovely watercolors by the end of the workshop. At least one daily demonstration painting is completed by the instructor and the students. Much of the time is devoted to learning how to paint the individual components of a successful painting. You'll learn how to go from value sketch, trace on paper to completed watercolor painting.

  I recently attended a one week watercolor painting workshop by Tony Couch. All I can say is WOW! You got to attend one of his workshops if you are serious about watercolors and being successful as a watercolor artist.
