The winter watercolor technique is to start with a small brush and then move your arm up and move the brush from side to side. Don’t worry about the brush making a mess, or even getting messy. You are just creating a new area to paint with your brush. You just need to start with a few small watercolor swatches, and when you get to the bigger pieces, you will have a way of working your way through the painting process.
I love winter watercolors. I’ve painted more winter watercolors than I care to admit. And I’m one of those people that likes to use every color of every brush. The technique has a bit of a history in my craft, but I’d never considered it to be a major technique for painting, until recently.
I like to use spray paint and brushes to paint on, not just on the skin of my body. There are a lot of brushes on the market that can be used in different areas of the body. I always used one brush for the face, and one for the nose, and one for the eyes. I haven’t had the same experience with brushes in all my works, but I have a few. These aren’t my brushes, they are my brushes.
I’m glad this is true. In the past I would have just used a brush to paint and then, like a painter, I would use a palette knife to remove the excess paint that had settled on my skin. I’ve just recently started using a brush to paint instead of the palette knife. I’ve been using the “Holo” brush that is made for watercolor, which I use in the summer.
I was looking for a brush that could paint transparent watercolors, and I found this one for the eyes. Now I can easily paint a watercolor look without worrying about the excess paint from the palette knife. It’s perfect for painting the winter time in my house, or any time I’m trying to go back in the winter time.
I’ve been using the Holo brush for awhile now without problems, but I’ve noticed that I’m getting a bit more paint on my eyes. I don’t know if I’m just getting lazy or if this is an issue with the Holo brush or the paint, but I’d like to try out using the Holo brush in the winter time.
That’s a good idea, just don’t buy the whole “wash the brush in warm water” approach. The hot water should never be used for painting, it’s too harsh on the surface, and any pigment is too strong. I’ve found that using warm water does bring out the best of the pigment in my paints, but it also makes them more brittle and streaky.
I do some serious painting in the wintertime, but I use a little water to help the paint get a little more of a “glow.” If you’d rather paint with a brush and avoid a quick-drying finish, you can find some great brushes for use in the wintertime at www.hobbes.com. I used mine to finish a piece of wall art that I painted with a traditional medium.
This is a great way to get the color you want without the mess of a paintbrush. Use a light coat of water to bring out the color while you paint, and then a light coat of water to seal in the color. That way you dont have to worry about the color bleeding into the water. I also like dipping my brush in cool water to make the colors more opaque. If youre not comfortable with the water, dont worry. It wont effect the color.
If I were to take the time to teach you how to do this, I would tell you to start by painting on a flat surface. You can use a flat brush, but if you use a sponge brush, you can use it to get the colors on the paper as it dries. I also like to use a paintbrush, because a sponge brush can easily get all over the paper with water and dirt.
