For the Painter #28: Wielding the brush

“Watercolor is a medium that can be as demanding and temperamental as those who choose to paint with it. But it is a colorful and exciting medium all the same – well suited to describing the many moods of the subject, as well as those of the artist wielding the brush.”

–Jean Burman

This week in For the Painter #28...

Hello there!

I have three short art tip videos for you this week.

1. How to Mount Watercolor Paper with Richie Vios

2. How to Varnish a Watercolor Painting with Richie Vios

3. How to use a ruling pen to apply masking fluid

I have a ruling pen that came with a compass I purchased and at first, I didn't know what the ruling pen was for. After watching a few videos, like the one above, I have used it to draw lines using ink or watercolor paint.

The ruling pen also works nicely for applying masking fluid because you can create a thin line and the clean up is easy.

Do you need a ruling pen? No, but it would be nice to have if you create lots of thin lines in your paintings or often apply masking fluid in a detailed manner.

The crocuses are blooming and it's almost February -- one month closer to spring!

I hope your week is a good one,

Vinita
