A watercolor in earthy ochre tones & a video about the history and use of yellow ochre in watercolor, and it's iterations as a natural & synthetic pigment.

+Gabriele Smolarz - Yes, you can absolutely print a collagraph without a press. You'll have to experiment with ink thickness and paper and pressure, but it can be done! Good luck with your printmaking adventure, and thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful little press! If only it could tell us all of the adventures it's been on so far! Congratulations on that sweet addition to your space. And your printed bag logo with crows is AWESOME. I love it!

+BartolomeJacinto - Thanks for the suggestion to do some watercolor tips on color variations between brands of watercolor & a compare-review of professional vs student grade watercolors. Great ideas!

Story
Tagline
Painter & Printmaker; www.belindadelpesco.com
Introduction
Hi there, 
I'm a watercolor painter & printmaker, born and raised in New England, and living & working in California. I've published an art blog since 2005, and the practice has been an inspiring resource documenting my journey as an artist, and a grounding exploration into the salve of the written word. 

I sell my work on Etsy (bdelpesco.etsy.com), and at Art Festivals and regional shows and exhibits. I love experimenting with various approaches in watercolor & printmaking, so I share the results of my meanderings on my blog with process photos and videos (http://bit.ly/1F1JDFZ). 

As a visual person, I appreciate pictorial instruction - in everything from art-making to cooking - so it seems natural to share images and videos from my studio. I hope the photos and descriptions of creating art here on my blog (http://www.belindadelpesco.com/) inspire you to follow along & make something. If you have any questions, be in touch.
