Thank you so much for a wonderful class, Dylan! I really appreciate everything about this and can't wait to see the rest of your lessons here. That's being said let's have a look on the stuff I made (not necessarily perfect but the most important thing to me is that I enjoyed the learning and creating process).
So first I began with thick/ watery and layering:
I did like both thick and watery texture.
Then I experimented with wet on wet (left) and wet on dry (right) and liked both as well! then tried the improvised (right) and planned (left), and apparently planning makes the painting well proportioned and maybe more pleasing to some. Personally I find both beautiful and unique in their own ways.
Then moved to separate/ together:
here I tried different sizes of brushes and I find that the smallest one gave the result that I liked the most in this exercise (the bigger ones are just funny).
Then I experimented with hot/cold pressed paper:
Then on to using the brush as a brush/ drawing tool:
In this series I focused more on gouache. However, I implemented some of the techniques with the brushes I had at that moment XD
Here's the result I got applying the improvised process:
and this the planned process (right) (the left one is made with another brush and colour):
and that's it! I'm so grateful for the enjoyment I had watching the videos and playing with colours.
