Techniques of the Lesson:
• Wipe out techniques – paint is removed from the surface to reveal special texture or details.
• Wet in wet – This technique is used for creating special effect. When the artists wishes to avoid hard edges, the paint is deposited onto a surface which is also wet, usually it has been pre moistened with water or another color. The paint will disperse in an unpredictable pattern.
• Wet in dry – This technique is used for a more controlled effect. The paint is applied to a specific area; the artist directs the placement of paint with the tip of the brush.
• Wash – A wash is a uniform application of transparent paint over a specific area. There are several types of washes, some show value or color change where the color can change from light to dark showing gradation or show a variegation of color if two or more colors are used.
• Casual wash – This is a wash applied in a casual or slip slap manner.
• Flat wash – This is an evenly distributed wash applied to a controlled area, showing little or no value change.
• Soft edge – Color is deposited to an area, a damp brush is used to remove the hard edge and create a damp area where the paint can gradually fade away.
• Charging color – paint is deposited to an area and forced to charge into another wet area.
