Watercolor Painting Basics : Watercolor Dry Brush Painting

Now, we’re going to do a dry brush technique.
A dry brush technique hardly uses any water at all. Just enough to make it flow onto the
brush. And using the texture of the brush the dry brush technique can produce interesting
striations and effects. You can use small brushes. Remember you don’t hardly want any
water on it at all. That’s why they call it dry brush you see? Generally the hairs and
fibers of the brush split up and you can do grass type techniques. You just want the tiniest
amount of water in the brush and load the paint up into the brush and you can do grass
techniques and other things.
