Art Is...Watercolor Methods

( 18:54 )

Demonstrations with different types of watercolor papers, brushes, and pigments explore wet-on-wet, controlled washes, and drybrush, plus innovative methods to enhance watercolor paintings. These short demonstrations clearly show such things as lifting pigment with a brush, scarring the paper, and spattering. Artist Stephen Quiller then demonstrates a landscape painting utilizing the methods shown earlier in the program. Watercolor masterworks are interwoven into the program to show how other artists have utilized these methods. Watercolor: Materials and Basic Techniques and Watercolor: Special Techniques are also available and complement this program.
