Loose, Lively and Lush: Conquering ' Less is More' by CTWS Artist Cheryle Chapline

Ever want to loosen up those brush strokes and use less instead of more of them ... and, have a better, fresher result for all of your effort? We will be tackling this seemingly 'hard to conquer' approach to painting during for our February monthly meeting with Cheryle Chapline at the helm.

Bring all of your normal watercolor supplies with the addition of your medium and larges sized 'Loosey Goosey' brushes, Stripers, Riggers, Swords, traditional Chinese brushes and/or Squirrel Brushes. If you don't have these or something similar ... or don't know what they are (they are all brushes!) ... no worries. We're a sharing bunch.

Fresh, moist paint is a must! Reference material should be of a multicolored object(s), i.e., a fluffy or feathery animal, a loose bouquet of flowers ... things with loose edges, etc. If you don't have your own reference material (live and/orphotos), some will be available (photo) ... so watch for an email the week before the meeting that will have it attached.

Regardless of you using your own reference or that provided, please do make the effort to pre-draw prior to the meeting. The drawing should not be greatly detailed ... in fact, the only detail needed will be at the focal point. Here's to Loosening Up!
