LIQUID WATERCOLOR PAINTS

My watercolor paints, an endeavor spanning some 25 years of development, are in constant change, always striving to improve the product. This does not sit to well with some people as they like things to be frozen in time and do not like any kind of change.I am a watercolorist in the Emil Nold'e tradition, explosions of saturated color on an absorbent surface, not plastic types that some people use, my watercolors are formulated towards that goal and produce great results for me and many other artists.If someone wishes to do otherwise, it's their choice. And I do not advise or promote it.

Robert Doak’s Concentrated Watercolors

It’s about time I upgraded the information concerning my watercolors, paper & related products for the people that know about them for the past 22 years and the new ones. 

First, no company has anything remotely close to what I have developed. 

Super-concentrated, Brilliant, Light Fast Liquid Water Colors!!!   

The paper I designed for them is just as important.  As watercolor painters know when you lay down a wash on all papers it looks great, nice and bright when it dries it’s dead, why?  All other papers are sized with cheap animal hide glue, from dead horses, cow & goats and you can smell it when it is wet.  PHEW!! That glue reactivates when you wet the paper and destroys the color in the paint.  My paper is made with gelatin that comes from the sinews of a calf and is sterilized for purity.  No smell, no color loss, better visual look.  If you want to see how my paper looks, get a sheet of bounty towel and put my color on it.

As a watercolorist myself, I inherited my interest from my father who was a competent painter in the style of Turner, Constable & Homer.  With his English background, he had it in his genes and passed it on to me.  I developed into an Emil Nold’e devotee, therefore the resulting products. Tastes aside the principles remain the same.  I recommend wiping the paper first with distilled water and starting wet in wet, it gives you more control and more brilliance.  The colors are so strong and concentrated that it’s difficult to lay it down full strength on a dry surface and wash it out. The result has the depth of oil paint!

These colors can be made into waterproof inks, gouache or liquid acrylics, just by adding the right ingredients.  You can prepare your paper or canvas with mica to give a mother of pearl effect.  I have a solvent based, “liquid glass” that eliminates plexi or glass for protection.

I NOW HAVE AN EMULSION-CANVAS, THAT'S 86in. W. THAT TAKES THE WC ALMOST AS GOOD AS THE PAPER. IF YOU ADD SOME WATER SOLUBLE VINYL TO THE COLORS IN, IT WILL "SET" THE SURFACE UP TO CONTINUE IN OILS.

I'M NOW MAKING LIQUID OIL COLORS, THAT IS AN EXTENSION TO THIS TECHNIQUE.

THE EMULSION CANVAS, THE WATERCOLORS, THE WATERSOLUBLE VINYL, THE LIQUID OIL PAINT, THE LIQUID GLASS (THAT ELIMINATES GLASS OR PLEXI), NOW THE LIQUID GLASS IS MADE WITH WATER, ALSO.
