Loose, Lively and Lush: Conquering ' Less is More' by CTWS Artist
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
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,
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
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
point. Here's to Loosening Up!
