Watercolor Techniques

Mary Kay D'Isa does a tour de force of the techniques and tools used in this approach to painting landscapes. Her tools are a fan brush, palette knife, sponge, plastic wrap, rigger brush, and salt. Her techniques include wet-n-wet, color wash, splatter, scratching, sponging, and bleeding. For ease of instruction, the school project demonstrates many of the same techniques at a slower pace.
