Watercolor Postcard Session at the Art Center

Today, I conducted another watercolor postcard activity for a group of ladies after their docent tour.
Watercolor postcard kits ready and awaiting the 51 students touring the current exhibitons at the von Liebig Art Center: Naples Collects and Big Cypress Swamp: The Western Everglades Landscape by Clyde Butcher.

  1. Medium or large waterbrushes efficiently combine the water reservoir with a functional easy-to-clean nylon brush (just squeeze and dab clean on any napkin or paper towel) nib eliminating the need to haul a separate heavy water container for rinsing brushes: Pentel and Niji.
  2. A nice set of watercolor crayons can do double duty as convenient watercolor pans and fun sketching tools: Caran D'Ache Neocolor II Artists' crayons.
  3. Lightweight portable blank postcard pads are available from several manufacturers: Canson, Strathmore, Cotman, Holbein.
Keep on painting!
