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.
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)
