May Member Meeting Art Demo Anne Kullaf

Drawing with a Brush–Creating Loose, Bold, Expressive Watercolors with Anne Kullaf

In this online ZOOM* lecture and demonstration, you will learn how to effectively use your brush instead of a pencil to create bold, fluid marks early on in the painting process. Emphasis will be on working with value relationships, perspective and a limited palette to get that fresh look that is never overworked. You will also learn about color mixing and how to keep your colors, pure, fresh and clean.

Materials needed:

Watercolor paints in the following colors: Azo Yellow (any bright cool yellow), Prussian blue (any blue with a greenish hue), Permanent rose or Alizarin crimson (any pink-ish red), raw sienna (any warm earthy yellow)

Tube of white gouache (or Chinese white watercolor)

Pointed round watercolor brushes in sizes 6 and 10

140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, 8×10 size (or thereabouts)
