A frequent juror of watercolor shows, figurative artist Ted Nuttall shares behind-the-scenes watercolor tips that might help you make your next painting an across-the-board winner: “When I’m jurying shows, quite often I will see a painting that on first glance looks really nice. Certain areas look beautiful and perfect and then it becomes obvious that others didn’t receive as much attention; therefore, the painting doesn’t look strong all the way across. I discovered that I was doing that to a certain degree in my own work. Now I try to pay more attention to completing the painting with as much energy at the end as I introduced in the beginning.”
