Rough paper and expressive brush marks

Painting evening skies watercolor on rough paper

I have just uploaded this short video clip that demonstrates the first stage of the painting “Evening Mood, Rottnest Island”.

The clip concentrates on brushes and how to use them effectively. Working on a rough paper this demonstration is not about dribbling all over the place, rather it is about brush control and managing the marks on a dry > damp surface.   I have made this a free clip that is downloadable for your convenience.  This allows you to trial the download experience with a small file and see how you can access it.

The second stage of this  demonstration is on my You tube channel

    Thank you for your inspirational technique and commentary. You’re a natural teacher. I’ll be checking to see whether there are some additional instructional offerings that I can afford to get.
