Cheng-Khee Chee Workshop ~ Day 1 ~ Rooster
Watercolor on half sheet
15" x 22"
The first day of the Cheng-Khee Chee workshop was using the traditional watercolor technique. I chose a safe rooster reference and used a half sheet instead of the full sheet and he said just plan on using the palette we brought without mixing the colors in the muffin tins. Whew! There are just so many things to consider the first day this was indeed a welcome break.
Creative Catalyst carries his DVD's that follow along with these techniques if you can't get to a workshop. I've been trying to cram the night before to anticipate reference material and techniques.
I have to have this brush before my next workshop. This 6" brush just screams "Watch out. Move over. I know what I'm doing." (whether you do or not) Chee usess it to wet his paper front and back and it does a super job but the "coolness" factor is over the top. It won't even go in the largest 3 lb. coffee can water holder without being turned sideways. Yep, next order for sure - maybe not the 6" but maybe the 4" or 5". I just try to remember for each days project - It's not the product, it's the process and all of us are working hard to understand the process and having a lot of fun and fellowship.
