I love Shibasaki’s tutorials. Thank you for sharing, Yvonne!May 15, 2019 at 12:17 pm
Well I guess I need some of this paper lolMay 15, 2019 at 12:38 pm
@Sandra-Strait You are welcome Sandra! I have such a crush on that guy and love his manner of teaching for a beginner so I’m always happy to share his videos. lolMay 15, 2019 at 12:40 pm
@springscreation Lisa, paper can make all the difference sometimes … especially for a beginner.
Our Sandra Strait here, however, can make any paper sing … she’s amazing like that. lol I want to be able to do that too someday. 😀May 15, 2019 at 1:36 pm
Thank you, Yvonne! What I do is try to find out what the paper does best rather than try to make it do just anything. I enjoy trying to destroy it, lol. That tells me what limits it has and what might work or won’t.May 20, 2019 at 11:54 am
Nicola B. shares a quick tip on holding your brush that may help.May 20, 2019 at 3:45 pm
The ways to hold your brush is something that I think gets neglected a lot. Excellent video. Thank you for sharing Yvonne!May 21, 2019 at 2:31 pm
@sandra-strait Yes, I agree Sandra. It can also be an individual thing for some I’m sure, but it never hurts to observe how others hold theirs and try it for one’s self. Typically, I avoid touching the metal ferrule or (binding material on quills).May 21, 2019 at 9:50 pm
There are also techniques that work better if you hold the brush farther up the handle, or at right angles to the paper or almost parallel to the page. Knowing when to use a different grip can make it so much easier to get the effect you want.May 22, 2019 at 1:31 pm
James Gurney offers some great tips with Gouache:May 22, 2019 at 1:47 pm
@sandra-Strait Oh for sure, Sandra! I used the side hold, with a very dry brush, to apply most of the blushes of pink on the rose petals. It’s a very effective method for areas where you want to “skip” the paint across the surface.May 22, 2019 at 8:01 pm
I really need to watch this one. It’s been so long since I did anything with gouache and they were old ones. Thank you for sharing Yvonne!
