I’m running a bit behind on my projects! So today I thought I’d share a painting in progress. It’s another Slash watercolour portrait with Brusho Crystal Colours. If you missed the first one I shared, you can see it HERE in this post. For both paintings, I followed the online tutorials from the talented Nadja Yabrova.
PAINTING IN PROGRESS
I have the first couple of layers of paint down at this point. The background is still to be done, as well as added shadows and touch-ups.
In the photo above, I’ve put the reference photo to the left of my painting. The background will be a colour wash, without the details of the equipment cases. As you can see, I need to do some detail & definition work, so that Slash doesn’t resemble the headless horseman!
There’s a terrific group on Facebook called Brusho Fun that I’ve joined. Everyone in the group uses Brusho, obviously, and all skill levels are welcome! It’s a very supportive and helpful group. If you’re looking for something like this (there’s free tutorials as well), I recommend you join! You can find the group HERE.
This Slash tutorial by Nadja is a paid tutorial, available in The Fine Art Café Academy. Here, you can find tutorials in Brusho, as well as traditional watercolour. There are also FREE tutorials – all you have to do to access them is to create a profile – no cost involved!
Brusho can be a bit tricky to find in Canada, I’ve discovered. I’ve had about 12 colours for several years – one kit I ordered directly from the U.K.! Now, I’ve found that some colours are available in Canada through Delta Art Supplies. Other links outside of Canada are linked in the supply list, below. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried painting with Brusho, and how you enjoy it! Leave me a comment, and let me know what you think about my painting in progress, too.
