Giclee (pronounced "zhee-clay") is an invented name for the process of making fine-art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word was coined to distinguish commonly known industrial "Iris proofs" from the fine-art prints artists were producing on the same printers. The name has since come to mean any high-quality, ink-jet print, and is often used in galleries and print shops to denote such.
 In the past few years, the word (as a fine-art term) has come to be associated with prints using fade-resistant "archival" inks and the inkjet printers that use them. A wide variety of substrates are available, including various textures and finishes such as matte photo paper, watercolor paper, cotton canvas, or artist textured vinyl.

How do you create skin tones in watercolor?

Today's Q and A

Q - How do you create skin tones in watercolor?

A - While it seems to be a popular use of tertiary colors in creating skin tones I have found the use of simple primary colors red, blue and yellow to be more effective and a lot easier in creating skin tones. Using a light base of yellow or even light red to begin, glazed layers of yellow, red and blue mix will allow for excellent control of tones. Making color adjustments with each layer will give you a more than satisfactory and realistic result.
