Assembling Supplies for Plein Air Painting
On behalf of Tvlessson.com, I'm Sherie Tengbergen. In this clip, I'm going to show you some of the great supplies for plein air painting. And, the reason why I like plein air painting is you can go out on location with just a few supplies and come back with a painting that you can do in the studio with your watercolors that will look exactly alike.
And, what I mean by that is here’s an example of two roses. This rose and this rose look almost exactly the same but this particular rose was done with watercolor pencil, just a plain flat brush and some water and, this one, I took back to the studio and did it with watercolor. So, this is so much easier because when I go on location, all I need is a twelve-color pack of really cheap Crayola, watercolor pencils, a little small palette like this.
These types of brushes, a round brush, a flat brush and a very small brush, a cup for a water and yes, gin or water. Why do I say gin? Because gin dissipates really quickly in the air and the reason why that’s great is if you do a painting and you don’t want to take it home wet, gin will dry the paint very quickly. And, what you do with the rest of it? That’s your call.
So, what I'm going to do is I'm just going to show you real quickly. You can take a watercolor pencil and you can do cross hatching and then take a brush with just some clean water or gin and paint and get a nice watercolor look to your surface. So, what a great way to go out and do work on location with just these simple ingredients?
On behalf of Tvlesson.com, this is Sherie Tengbergen and thanks for watching.
