Article on Gradients in International Artist #142

The new issue of International Artist Magazine features exercises and insights about painting smooth gradients, using watercolor washes, brayers, and stipple blends. 

John Ruskin observed in his landmark book Modern Painters (1843) that a gradient color has the same relationship to a flat color as a curved line has to a straight line. He noted that nature contains movement of color both on the large and the small scale, even down to the smallest brushstroke or pebble: “Nature will not have one line nor color, nor one portion nor atom of space without a change in it. There is not one of her shadows, tints, or lines that is not in a state of perpetual variation.”

Also included in the magazine are features on Brad Teare, Julia Albo, Natalia Karpman, Kristine Rapohina, Vanessa Rothe, and Anastasia Mily
