More Info on Wash Techniques

by Marlise
(South Africa)

Please tell me more about the wash technique. I love the paintings of Robert Tilling, but nowhere on the internet is any information of how he does this.

I am sure you know what he really does because you are experienced. What paper is he using? Is the paper wet or dry? How did he do that white line above the horizon sometimes? How does he tilt the board? Sideways? I have tried this but its all just a disaster! And important: what is the colour combination that works well in washes like this?

I am in South Africa and have nobody in my town to teach me, so I rely on my watercolor books and the internet. Your website is most useful!

Robert Tilling's paintings NEW
by: Mary Ann

Sorry I am so late in responding to your inquiry. I am not really familiar with Robert Tilling, but upon viewing his work on the web I can tell you that he used a very good watercolor paper (probably 200lb.) He also wet the paper and covered it with a warm wash (for most of the paintings). He may also have added a thicker strong pigment while the painting was damp (not wet) to achieve brilliant color with soft edges. For any of the hard edges, he waited for the paper to dry, then mixed his strong color, be it black or dark blue or purple or mahogany and painted the shape he wanted very deliberately. I hope this answers your questions. If anyone else knows more about Robert Tilling, please feel free to add your comments to this page.
