See Corrections While Painting Watercolor Portraits with Colleen Reynolds

“So the first thing I want to do is correct this angle. So I’m going to pull out a little bit of the red to start with, and I’m going to get up on the tip of my brush so that I can get a fine line. And I’m using my floppy brush. That’s the official term for it. It is a floppy brush and I’m just going to bring that down to a point. And remember, I like to mix my colors on the page. So I’m going to neutralize that with the blue. Hopefully at the end, no one, but us will know. And a mistake in the beginning, unless you look really close, it is it’s apparent. So it’s going to show that line because what a color is a transparent medium, which is both, it’s most a desirable trait and it’s most frustrating trait all at once. I’m just going to correct that angle to my satisfaction. And then I’m going to caress that out. I really want a good clean edge. So that’s an important feature.”

Overlapping Pedal Technique for a French Beading Flower with Shahar Boyayan

“Let’s now combine that to create another technique here that where you over lap, the paddles. So for the inside one, I want to have seven beats in my center, 3, 6, 7, or about half an inch. You would be right with either and you’re going to loop that like we did at the beginning. And you pinch, so you don’t have wire showing. And twist twice. For this one, we want three rolls of wrap around. So this is the first time we, we are doing the three roles, this course, three and four, the inside of my rows. I want, three rows, three paddles. So I have to do three more, two more. So again, same number or half an inch. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.”
