Art Making l Watercolors: Focus on Dry Brush and Nontraditional Materials

The dry brush technique allows a painter to create texture or light in a way that the wet-into-wet technique does not. We will look around our houses for everyday objects that can create interesting textures. Using salt and alcohol can also be a fun way to work with watercolor, but often it’s not the most archival method. We will practice creating foliage for trees in the foreground, middle distance, and the background using these techniques.
