Jenna Rainey of Mon Voir demonstrates a watercolor technique using a Princeton Heritage Round Size 2 brush. “A perfect demonstration of how I use wet on wet technique to create a soft blend between highlights and shadows for a more detailed flower! Using my size 2 round synthetic sable brush, I’ve started with a light, washy mixture of Opera Rose and Lemon Yellow Deep watercolor from @winsorandnewton, starting at the top of the petal and working down toward the creases or overlap. Once I get close enough, I load up with more color for a thicker and darker value of paint and line the crease with my shadow color and let it diffuse into the light/highlight color to create a soft blend from shadows, midtones and highlights.”
The round brush is a traditional shape which includes spotters, short liners, script liners, the basic round and Princeton’s new long round. The Velvetouch™ Long Rounds were developed over several years by the expert brush makers at Princeton and rigorously tested by Willow Wolfe and a team of artists for performance, durability and quality. It is a premiium blend of luxury synthetic, tapered to provide precision and fine detail, while the full body provides a controlled release of color.
