Last school year I was looking for inspiration to share with my after-school Art Club (3rd through 6th graders). Along the way I found a YouTube video that promised to teach me some new things with watercolors. Boy, did I luck out!
First I found Bob Davies, which then led me to a talented artist named Joanne Boon Thomas. ( Both are from the UK, thus the spelling of watercolour with u in it.) I purchased a set of “Brusho” paints in a kit with 2 DVD discs. She is the instructor, and it was well worth the $65 that I paid.
This photo is one of my first times “playing” with these fantastic and intriguing new paints which are “highly pigmented water-based powders”, so they are applied and used in a variety of ways. A good website for other artists to investigate is: Art Tutor , and to find the paints, Paintbox Art Media Ltd. .
Since I was “playing” anyway, and after having viewed the first disc thoroughly, I used a painting that I had only started while trying to guide my young artists last April. I plunged in and used the Brusho paints and techniques to finish it. I “rather like it”, as she says, so I decided to share it on My Art to Inspire. I hope this inspires you, too!
