Playing with Dry Brush Techniques

Possibly I mentioned that I have been teaching seniors painting at our town’s local Senior Activity Center for over 15 years. In November we did some projects and lessons with various painting techniques. These are from the lesson on dry brush….and started with raw umber gessoed canvas. Most of the brush strokes were done with a ragged dry brush and acrylics. The sailboat one is 18×24″ and is called “Sailing Close to the Shore” The shell painting is 20×20″. These are rather small canvases (for me) and are quite affordable. I like the abstract qualities and sorbet colors.
