Hi friends! Today we are going to learn about dry-brushing and textures in the FREE live painting lesson happening at 12:30pm Eastern Time on YouTube. You can watch live or catch the replay in the player below but if you want to ask questions in chat be sure to view it on the YouTube watch page. I occasionally have some people tell me that they can’t comment in the chat live, usually it means that your browser is out of date. Chrome and internet explorer work well for me. I find I can watch and comment on my phone but I don’t see everyone elses comments. Also you need to be logged in to your YouTube account to comment (if you have left a comment on a video in the past you have one, if not it is free and easy.) I sketched out a pattern for you to use if you like, simply print it out and trace it on your watercolor paper. there is a link to the reference photo below, I moved some buoys around and eliminated some detail.
You can watch like at 12:30pm ET in this video player!

This was the color study I did this morning to prepare for the full shack painting. I will try to keep the lesson to an hour but we might go long due to the complexity of this one. Don’t worry, the replay will be available in case you can’t do the painting all in one sitting, I totally get that! I hope to see you live at 12:30! Til then happy crafting!
