This is awesome Carol! It is just the kind of realistic painting of portraits etc., that I want to do. I am just starting out, so I hope to learn from you by following your wonderful work. Thank you for sharing. Shirley

Carol, Would you please tell me if transparent watercolors are special ones that one buys, or are they diluted by the artist? Thank you. As I said above, I am just starting out. I have purchased some watercolor paints, but not sure if they are transparent. Thank you again, Shirley

Ask the people where you purchase your paints if they are transparent. A lot of watercolors are transparent, meaning light can penetrate them, allowing the white of the paper to show thru. You can Google the difference between transparent and opaque. I'll try to leave a link here but I'm not sure if Craftsy will allow it. http://brendaswenson.blogspot.com/2012/03/watercolor-paints-understanding-opaque.html

I use Daniel Smith watercolor paint. They label which colors are transparent. Candeekissez is correct.....one can see the paper through the paint.
