Brush Drawing

Taking an art class means using unfamiliar mediums and this morning we drew with a paintbrush and black paint. The big difference from the way I use watercolor is that we painted directly on the paper without first drawing in pencil. Our beginning efforts were quick two and five-minute sketches so we could become familiar with the materials.

After I got to know which brush to use, how much paint to put on the brush, and how hard to press down, I began to enjoy the medium. I tried to use the direction of brushstrokes and color strength to show the shape to the model. The morning flew by and I am looking forward to using this medium on my own.

This is a brush drawing on multimedia paper using black watercolor.
