It’s an interesting trend to see how people look for solutions to their personal health issues. I have never been able to completely eliminate the need for my regular doctor, but I have definitely learned to live with that. I have been lucky enough to have a chronic disease that I don’t always think about much, but I have a few little “hacks” I have made that I now live with and take for granted each day.
One of my biggest health problems is a chronic and often debilitating illness. I have an auto-immune disease that attacks my liver, kidneys, and adrenals. It can be incredibly debilitating and life-threatening, and it makes living with this ailment a constant struggle. The fact that so many people have the same disease in the same area of the body (and often the same part of the body) doesn’t help matters.
I have a few little hacks I have made that I now live with each day. One is actually my wife, who has the same autoimmune disease. It’s pretty amazing, you know, when you can be your own doctor and still have a husband or wife who can help you out. What I have is a series of little tricks and tips that help me get through my day. One of them is a technique that many of you might already know but might be a little new to you.
Joplin is a famous folk artist from the 1930’s and he always wanted to paint in the nude in his later years. Not that I necessarily need to know that, but I think it’s a great way to keep your identity and personal style out there.
So the idea is to use a watercolor brush to spray water in a wide arc (like you’re painting) to create a large, almost-nude canvas. The watercolor is then washed down on the canvas with a small brush so it dries and forms a smooth, even surface.
I’ll admit, I’ve only painted a few pieces in the past and they’ve always been on the smaller side. But the more I have, the more I realize that the process is incredibly rewarding. It’s also kind of amazing that the watercolor technique works so well on a canvas that isn’t a canvas at all. It’s almost like you’re painting on a different medium. The technique works in a way that’s almost like painting at a very high speed.
Artists are almost always self-taught, and even those who have been doing it for a long time can only use one or two of the techniques they pick up on their own. But with a few careful strokes, you can use watercolor to create tones and effects that just aren’t available in other techniques. The end result is a color that is unique but almost looks like it was painted on the canvas with a watercolor brush.
I think this technique needs to be used with a very careful eye and very minimal application of watercolor. You can get some really nice results with a very small piece of watercolor, but you can end up with a watercolor/oil color that looks like it was painted on the canvas with a watercolor brush. Using it in a way that isn’t too intense and uses a lot of watercolor strokes will end up with a more subtle result.
I’m not sure about this, but I think the joplin health and rehab painting technique has a lot of advantages. It uses a very minimal amount of watercolor and doesn’t use the watercolor brush at all. It also uses more subtle strokes that can be used in many different ways, so it’s not as likely to look like it was painted on the canvas with a watercolor brush.
It also requires less time and effort because the results are subtle and not too intense. If you dont use a very minimal amount of watercolor, you will end up with a much more intense result that will look like a painting, but is not quite as subtle.
