Beginner to Intermediate User – approx. 1 hour
This tutorial is designed to be easy to follow and easy to understand. A beautiful “blending painting” is completed during the initial phase of this tutorial initially using the Sargent brush found in the artist category. The “Just Add Water” variant can be substituted effectively . The painting is taken further to add additional loose and creative brush strokes, ultimately creating a more intermediate level painting. Expressive brushes are selected from the Skip Allen brush collection Desert Oasis, a watercolor set which has been converted to cover brushes. With these brushes she “adds paint”, not blending, to the background, clothing, and yes the hair – even colors. Winifred challenges you to take your painting beyond the safety of painting only from information in the photo and to become more expressive, and to expand your creativity. This is an excellent tutorial for a beginner or intermediate painter looking to loosen their strokes and to express greater creativity. During the tutorial,Winifred suggest brushes which you can substitute effectively to obtain similar results. With the purchase of this tutorial, I will send you one of most favorite and expressive brushes which I use in this tutorial.
